Scaling Data at Facebook

At Facebook, we have unique storage scalability challenges when it comes to our data warehouse. Our warehouse stores upwards of 300 PB of Hive data, with an incoming daily rate of about 600 TB. In the last year, the warehouse has seen a 3x growth in the amount of data stored. Given this growth trajectory, storage efficiency is and will continue to be a focus for our warehouse infrastructure.

Scaling the Facebook data warehouse to 300 PB

That's... a lot of data. Fascinating to hear about the types of things you have to consider when you're at that scale.
