Yahoo is up to 10 petabytes now?

According to somebody (I forget who) who attended Yahoo’s SIGMOD presentation last week, the big Yahoo database is now up to 10 petabytes in size, in line with Yahoo’s predictions last year.  Apparently, Yahoo also gave more details of how the technology works.

    According to me,,,

    Yahoo and Google both are brothers. The thing is that one is younger and another is elder,,,,

    And, I am also last younger brother of both. They said me that they have around 1.1 MB size database and they are using RDB ( Rampal Database ).

    It appreciate if all can start use RDB database. Actually, that database created by my brother Yahoo ! and Google and they live it by my name,,,

    Have a fun ,,,,, Guys,,,,,

    Finally, the thing is proved that database size is 10 MB.

    Great going Jack good working,,,,
