    Question Best DB for speed, size & many users.

    Hi,

    Im newer than a newbie! and would appreciate some opinions on which is the best DB to meet the following criteria?

    1. High speed (many updates, inserts, queries per second
    2. Large / Unlimited Size (potentially will eventually hold millions of records)
    3. Supports a lot of concurrent users (not sure how many at this stage)

    I was thinking MySQL. Any thougths on this or another DB would be really appreciated.

    Thanks!
    Laura.

    any of the major databases can do this -- mysql, postgresql, db2, sql server, oracle, ...

    however, if you are "newer than a newbie" you should not be building a high performance, high volume database as your first database
