How do you build the world's largest database?
What DBMS would you use?
What techniques and technologies are involved?
This talk walks through various "top ten" lists of the world's largest databases, pointing out the software, hardware and configurations employed. While certain aspects of these huge databases are unique to their scale, one can also learn much about the databases you and I support on a daily basis.

He works hands-on with the major database products under Unix, Linux and Windows. Fosdick has written many technical articles and books and frequently speaks at user groups and conferences.
