Storage & Databases

Contains records describing a part of reality…

Storage: It is a system that supports multiple disks in order to provide easy and fast accessibility and security while converting information into data.

Storage is frequently used to describe the devices and dasta connected to the computer through input/output (I/O) operations — that is, hard disk and tape systems and other forms of storage that don’t include computer memory and other in-computer storage. For the enterprise, the options for this kind of storage are of a much greater variety and expense than those related to memory.

Database: A database is a collection of information that is organized so that it can be easily accessed, managed and updated.

Data is organized into rows, columns and tables, and it is indexed to make it easier to find relevant information. Data gets updated, expanded and deleted as new information is added. Databases process workloads to create and update themselves, querying the data they contain and running applications against it. Computer databases typically contain aggregations of data records or files, such as sales transactions, product catalogs and inventories, and customer profiles. Typically, a database manager provides users with the ability to control read/write access, specify report generation and analyze usage.
