Thank you Johan.
The table will be read only. There will be two steps - first to get the
count using search conditions and then to get data from some columns based
on those search conditions. The fields will be indexed as per search

Subject: Re: MySQL Performance with large data
The amount and type of data is less the issue than the amount and type of
queries is :-) The machine you've described should be able to handle quite a
bit of load, though, if well-tuned.

I am using MySQL 5.0.45 in production environment. One of my tables (using
MyISAM Engine) is expected to have around 4 billion records and each record
will have 1867 bytes of data. All fields in this table are of character data
type. I have 8 GB RAM on the server, RAID 5 with 750 GB storage space
available and quad core processor.
My question is whether MySQL will be able to handle queries on this amount
of data? What all things I need to consider here?
