(also data storage system)
The data store is a digital repository that stores different data types. A data store may be a relational database, NoSQL database, object-oriented database, or file system. The datastore structure depends on the application or service’s specific requirements, such as the type of data that needs to be stored, the quantity of the data, the user base, and the performance criteria. A company or a third-party supplier manages the data store, which can be on-site or on the cloud. Additionally, data stores have few uses, such as data analytics, data archiving, data recovery, business intelligence, and transaction processing. They also offer several data management features, including data replication, backup and recovery, data encryption, and access control. They improve the organization’s safety and prevent malware attacks.
