Just last night I was talking to someone about different databases and
what-not (he's stuck in a windows shop using MSSQL and I mentioned I'd
heard some bad things about it's stability). I realized at some point
that asking about what large installs of something exist is pretty
pointless... given enough effort you can make almost anything scale. As
an example, there's a cable company with a MySQL database that's nearly
1TB... if that's not proof you can make anything scale, I don't know
what is. ;)

What people really need to ask about is how hard it is to make something
work, and how many problems you're likely to keep encountering.
