"This is the first time, that we know of, that someone has put a one petabyte-plus database into production," said Waqar Hasan, VP of data at Yahoo. "We have built it to scale to tens of petabytes and we intend to get there. Come 2009, we'll be at multiple tens of petabytes."
A petabyte equals one thousand terabytes, one million gigabytes, or 1 trillion megabytes.

"It's an uncommon enough measurement that the word "petabyte" is not yet recognized by Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) Word 2007's spell checker."

1000 terabytes Ho-HUMM. Data out the ying-yang. Like having the world's biggest library, with a blind man cataloging it.

Wow, I don't mean to be incendiary, but the reigning attitude toward Yahoo around here is brutal! They could find the cure for cancer and find plants growing on Mars, and you'd all still be like "yawn! obviously just doing it to impress Microsoft".
