    How people are maintaining huge websites with wordpress

    They are using hosts that don't limit their database size. Many use their own dedicated server.

    If your database is getting towards that size, you could just switch to a different host.

    Actually ... Via plugins like SharDB you can use multiple DBs. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/shardb/

    That said, if your DB really is 1G, I would start by deleting my post revisions and trim them down to 2 or so per post.
