The massive increase in the amount of data generated from the sensors that surround us, in our cell phones, our computers, our hospitals, our power network, and the enormous pressure to produce results in real-time are beyond the capabilities of existing databases. To meet these emerging needs, we have built a platform for web-scale OLAP on sensor network data. In this talk, I will describe the challenges faced, the many false starts, and the approaches we ultimately took in building our storage and query infrastructure capable of real-time update and query performance over hundreds of terabytes of multidimensional data.
