Reason why storing data in database is better than storing data in file when the data is large

  • You can query data in a database (ask it questions).
  • You can look up data from a database relatively rapidly.
  • You can relate data from two different tables together using JOINs.
  • You can create meaningful reports from data in a database.
  • Your data has a built-in structure to it.
  • Information of a given type is always stored only once.
  • Databases are ACID.
  • Databases are fault-tolerant.
  • Databases can handle very large data sets.
  • Databases are concurrent; multiple users can use them at the same time without corrupting the data.
  • Databases scale well.
