JokeThe case of the PetaByte Pin

Not trying to poke the friends here.

But it's amusing to see how few heads get heated up and scream "Peta byte per week?" Heck you cannot work on such huge projects. When you clearly do not know what the project is about.
When I am not sure about the project, how can you be so sure that the project or the data handled cannot be of that size?

My boss was joking about this attitude with the Data scientists whom he was interviewing for the team.
On their CVs, they highlight in bold. The current analytics engine run over "x PBs" of data.
And among the Data Scientists & the Data Engineers, It's a scale of expertise. And among the Data-Engineers , they doubt each other if the other is really working on data of that scale.

This reminded me of people in 2000s. that brag about thread-pools and out-of-proc distributed architectures. Big Grin | :-D

The previous post I made - I had clearly mentioned, the guy whom we interacted with might have said an outrageous figure just to test our "capacity to think" about the architecture.
And he did send us couple of research papers that talked about solving the Peta-byte challenge.
We never know what's the exact sources of these data. Except for the high-resolution videos.

He said "Virtually unlimited storage" on a geographically distributed deployment. Nobody knew what this is about. I posted a question asking if the requirements are insanely high, what's the recommended approach.

Two possibilities I see.
1. You are not interested to answer the question.
2. You are interested (That's why you reply) but you are quite skeptical about the Peta-Byte figure.

A gentlemanish reply I should say[^]

Great manners are learned from the few good. Thanks OriginalGriff.Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
