FAQ
flat files data bases are mostly used for molecular biology data storage,
I do not know of any molecular biology data bank that runs undeer a real
data engine, but it has many reasons why, and of course u can import
these flat files and get them in to a real database engine, and OFCOURSE
it would be MUCH by far more easy to administrate and develop but there
is one point... there are more than I would say 50 different molecular
biology databases and justone of them may be ofer 75 gigas.... I do not
knwo (and please read DO NOT KNOW) much more in deep about data engines
but can a data engine like oracle handle 50 different databases that
together may be about... many many gigas.. more than 600 gigs and that
grow very fast.... every day? I ask because I do not know. cheers

Hi all,
We are proposing a project to convert applications that use flat files to
Oracle databases. An essential piece of this proposal is to present to the
management the advantages of databases over flat files. Are there any
websites, whitepapers that talk about this? I know this probably is a
no-brainer for most of you but we just want to have all of our ducks in a
row so that we can make a strong case. TIA
