No ... as I have said ... how I'll manage a database getting a table of may be 
250 000 000 records ? I'll need incredible servers ... to get quick access or 
index reading ... no ?

So what we would like to get is a pool of small servers able to make one 
virtual server ... for that is called a Cluster ... no ?

I know they are not using PostgreSQL ... but how a company like Google do to 
get an incredible database in size and so quick access ?
