Tables Variables ARE Stored in tempdb

Well here's something I never knew.  When you declare a table variable it does get instantiated into tempdb.dbo.sysobjects.  I was under the impression it wouldn't.  If you run this code...declare @junk table(i int) select *from tempdb.dbo.sysobjectswhere name not like 'sys%' ... you can see it happening.  I found this and a few other interesting table variable nuggets at INF: Frequently Asked Questions - SQL Server 2000 - Table Variables.

Largest SQL Server Databases

Microsoft recently released a list of the largest SQL Server databases in production.  Topping the list is a 5 TB monster from Verizon Communications.  Actually Verizon appears 6 times on the top 24.  It seems they've made a pretty big commitment to SQL Server.  It scales down pretty quickly from the top though.  #24 on the list is “only” 512GB.  I guess if I want to win this award I'll have to get more data or drastically reduce my storage efficiency.  Hello images in the database!
