And who ever needs to think about that stuff? A tiny number of companies.

Again, I just think you're not considering the vast majority of us here work in terms of thousands, 10s of thousands or millions of users, not the sort of scales where anything you're saying ever becomes relevant.

For most of us, if you spend any time thinking about that, you're utterly wasting it. It's pointless. Greenfield or not.

I have no idea where the mindset comes from that only large companies have large datasets.

In my experience, a dataset is considered large if its the largest dataset the company has ever seen. It could be 2GB and be considered "large".
