There is an estimated 300 hours of video content being uploaded on YouTube from various sources every minute, and an estimated 5 billion videos are watched every day. On Netflix, an average of 33.3 million subscribers stream an average of 2 hours of movies and/or TV shows a day. From a data analyst point of view, the data being exchanged seems to be limitless. So where do these top media sites store and retrieve their content? How do they know what to recommend to a specific user? How do they know what you are watching? The answer lies in the complex and diverse management of the company’s database.
