    Need help choosing which database

    Hi,

    i have written a visual basic program which records data by writing to a database. however most databases have limits to how big they can get.

    i need to write about... 1 billion records (dont ask) but need to know which type would be best. i have 5TB of storage for this database.

    Sounds like a fair amount of data to work with in a VB environment. Non the less, you might need to consider a large scale db. Have you worked with any of the major ones?

    If not then you could start with MySQL. But you will also need to know more to decide on raid layout, and other capacity issues.
