New KDnuggets Poll is asking:

Here are the results and analysis of this poll: Largest Dataset Analyzed / Data Mined.

This is one of the longest running poll series on KDnuggets - see results of similar past polls below, and while the median answers grows each year, the percentage of data miners which work with really large data (many terabytes and petabytes) grows surprisingly slowly.

This trend suggests that really Big Data sets remain the exclusive domain of data miners at web giants and some really large companies and government organizations.
