by Paul Jensen

IN THIS CHAPTER

  • Do I Have a Very Large Database (VLDB)?

  • VLDB Maintenance Issues

  • Partitioning Data

The realm of the very large database was once reserved for the mainframe environment and mega-corporations, but with the advent of fast, affordable processors and disks and database management software such as SQL Server 2000, large databases have proliferated as companies store huge amounts of data to assist in business analysis.

SQL Server 2000 was designed with the Very Large Database (VLDB) in mind, effectively scaling to support databases into the terabyte range.
