Sybase and Sun set Guinness world record

Sybase has set a new Guinness world record by powering the world’s largest data warehouse in New York on a Sun Sparc Enterprise M9000 server. The combination enables more data to be stored in less space and search and analysed in less time, while consuming 91 per cent less energy and generating less heat and carbon dioxide.

In a statement Guinness world records judge Danny Girton validated the record and says the warehouse is twice the size of Wal Mart’s commercial data warehouse, which was previously the largest.

“We congratulate everyone involved in this record-breaking achievement.”

In total, the data warehouse contains six trillion rows of transactional data and more than 185 million content-searchable documents, such as emails, reports, spreadsheets and other multimedia objects.
