This is Big Data

By Steve Jones, 2012/09/06

I’m sure some people have bigger data, but Facebook has some serious daily growth. The highlight? 500TB a day.

A day.

That’s serious data. I’ve never had a database that was a TB, must less growth by over a TB a day.

To be fair, lots of the Facebook data is unstructured, stored in Hadoop or NoSQL structures for images/video, but there’s a ton of database-like status updates, links, comments, etc. that have to be managed.

Rather impressive, but not something I want to administer.
