The SQLPASS Keynote - part 4

Dave Mariani from Yahoo (VP Development, User Data and Analytics) is on stage at the PASS Keynote, talking about how they analyse 120TB of data each day, delivering insight and the information they need to provide for advertisers.

The specs are 3.5B events per day. 1.2TB of data to be loaded (50GB files every hour), with a 12TB cube.

Funnily enough, they use the SQL Server Business Intelligence stack.
