Response to: MySQL is to DW what PostgreSQL is to OLTP

I've had the good (or bad) fortune to never work on a data warehouse of under a terabyte. If you want something really big like, oh, Southwestern Bell has, you need DB2 or Teradata (SWB's choice).


I don't work extensively with Oracle, but in my limited experience, it runs out of horsepower somewhere near a terabyte. Maybe the newer parallelism features will fix this.


One session I really wanted to attend this year was Multi-Terabyte Data Warehouse and MySQL. Having seen the challenges involved in getting systems of that size to perform efficiently, and thus being a skeptic when someone claims they can do so, I'd really like to hear what he's got to say.

    I see. Where I work we have an 11T data warehouse running on Oracle. I don't work directly with it, but it does provide daily reports, so it must be working ok enough.

    Just my $0.02.
