“Golly,” I thought to myself, “if my request(s) return 470 rows of data just for Alice Cooper, and I have a few other artists for whom I want to store data, and I’m considering a different table for each item’s popularity … can MySQL handle that?”
Now, I know I should have assumed that, since MS Excel could handle 65,536 rows the last time I checked (16 years ago), MySQL could handle at least that many.
If, like me, you ask yourself stupid questions, Google told me:
- 4,000,000,000 billion tables
- 1,073,741,824 rows per table
