The new database architecture 

Joe Gregorio
I've referenced BigTable a few times recently. As you look at Google, and now eBay, you see they aren't using traditional relational databases, or if they are, they aren't using them in a traditional manner. This isn't an aberration, nor is it a case of NIH, these are the artifacts of working at a different scale, and more importantly, you should expect to see the differences continue to grow as the ratio widens.
