Stonebraker on Databases for “Big Science”

There’s a new post by Stonebraker up at The Database Column. I don’t have much to add to the post itself, although it’s interesting to hear some information about the old Sequoia 2000 project. I notice that Google and Yahoo were invited to the workshop — at first glance, it seems to me that the data management problems faced by the big web companies are quite dissimilar to the challenges facing “big science”, but perhaps that’s not the case.
