Subj:   Sybase as the Next New Thing???
 
From:   Charles Farley

So there I was, minding my own business, doing some work, when one of the Sybase guys drops this in my Inbox for a joke:


'Sybase IQ Multiplex, together with Sun Microsystems, holds the record for the largest data warehouse ever. And Sybase ASE holds many TPC records as well as driving 56% of the financial organizations around the world.'

Sybase Data Warehouse numbers - compared to Teradata

And it looks really nice, except, I can't figure out exactly how they are doing that much data in that little bit of disk, are they not using any spool? Forgive my ignorance, I'm not so well educated in the database area, systems are more my thing. I am basically looking for a de-bunking of this, I don't believe numbers anymore, especially when they come from vendors, so I am betting this is some pretty good manipulation and not some kick butt new datawarehousing scheme. Anyone?


gracias,

loadc
