Dubbed the “Petabyte Power Players” at Teradata’s recent Partners Conference in Las Vegas, these customers now have data warehousing environments exceeding one petabyte—which underscores the global growth of data across industries and indicates the enormity, power and complexity of the world’s largest commercial enterprise data warehouses.
eBay, with a whopping 5 petabytes, tops the list. Other “power players” – a retailer, two financial institutions, and a manufacturer – manage data ranging from 2.5 petabytes down to 1 petabyte. Future power players are likely to be found in the 35 Teradata customers that have 100 hundred terabytes in their warehouse environments. 
The number that matters most, however, is ROI—return on investment. Teradata reports that one of its financial services customers reported ROI of 100% just four months after the installation of its data warehouse—and 300% after the first year. In most cases, the return happens very quickly, says the company.
The future? Its latest large platform—the Teradata Active Enterprise Data Warehouse—scales to more than 10 petabytes of user data. Which power player will be the first to reach that plateau?
