The BaBar Database System provides data persistency for the BaBar project. The system acts as an interface between about 5 million lines of custom written C++ code and a commercial Object Oriented Database System (Objectivity/DB), all running on 2000 CPUs and 100 servers.

This database is arguably the largest in the world: as of Fri Nov 5 00:01:13 2004, over 895.0 TB has been stored in 847149 files.
