Thanks for your input. BTW, which product was this for? Objectivity?

Yes, you read it right, petabytes (10^15 bytes). But not yet. We'll
start in 2005, right now we are still investigating. I suppose within
next couple of years we'll throw an order of a few hundreds of terabytes
at it to test performance. The garbage collection would make a lot of
things easier to analyse the data we collect, while the persistent data
does not really require GC -- at least not at this point.
