Weekly survey: what’s your largest database, and how many do you manage?

Jason Massie posted an interesting statistic yesterday – Facebook has 1.5 petabytes of image storage, and it grows by 25TB daily – I wonder how they store and manage it?

In this week's survey, I'm interested in two things: what's the largest single SQL Server database in your company and how many SQL Server databases are you responsible for managing? I'll report on the results sometimes over the weekend of 5/9/09.

A note on the second survey: if you manage a team of DBAs, but don't manage databases directly yourself, answer for your individual DBAs, rather than the team as a whole.


PS No comments on this post please (I'll delete them straight away) – please wait for the survey results post to avoid skewing the answers.
