TerraServer uses Microsoft SQL Server 7.0
Enterprise Edition to host the world's largest online database, 1.01 TeraBytes. It's a
huge repository of aerial photographs and satellite images taken from miles overhead that
you can view and, if you want, purchase. TerraServer, hosted on Digital AlphaServer from
Compaq and StorageWorks hardware, has more data than any database on the Internet; enough
data, in fact, that if printed on paper, it would comprise about 2,000
volumes, with each volume containing 500 pages.
