World's largest commercial Linux data warehouse runs Oracle Database

Oracle is the leading database for decision support and online transaction processing in real-world customer environments, according to the Winter Corporation 2005 Top Ten Program survey. Only Oracle Database produces leading results on Linux, UNIX, and Windows.


The survey, which identifies the world's largest and most heavily used databases, found that the largest commercial data warehouse in the world runs a 100 terabyte Oracle Database. That's more than triple the size of the largest database in the previous TopTen Program survey, which was also powered by Oracle.

The survey's newest category covering Linux DSS and OLTP databases was completely dominated by Oracle customers. Overall, the survey found that Oracle is the only database vendor whose customers posted top results on Linux, UNIX, and Windows platforms.

Other survey findings:


- The world's largest commercial database runs Oracle Database, with 100TB of data.
- The world's largest commercial data warehouse runs Oracle Database.
- The world's largest commercial UNIX data warehouse runs Oracle Database.
- The world's largest commercial Linux data warehouse runs Oracle Database.
- The world's largest scientific database runs Oracle Database.
- Oracle Database powers nine of the world's top 10 UNIX OLTP systems.
- Oracle Database powers 100 percent of all Linux DSS and OLTP measured in the Winter Corporation 2005 TopTen program.
- Oracle customers represent 58 percent of the all validated participants in the Winter Corporation 2005 TopTen program.

The Winter Corporation 2005 TopTen Program surveyed customers from 20 countries on five continents, in 11 industries from government to healthcare to retail to telecommunications, among others.

The Program identifies the world's leading database implementations based on Database Size and Most Rows/Records. As part of the rigorous survey process, respondents must have a validated database size that meets the survey's requirements.
