What are the benefits of embedded databases?

0

A database is a collection of information (records) that can be sorted, filtered and otherwise managed to develop or determine relationships among different data. Most databases are handled as stand-alone entities, unrelated to separate applications.DescriptionAn embedded database is one that is contained within another program, instead of being a stand-alone entity.MethodThey may be coded directly into the program or linked via libraries. Only when it runs can the program invoke the database.TypesThe best embedded databases are those that require little to no human interaction. Those involving enterprise systems, which require the constant entering and accessing of data, are not suitable for embedding.AdvantagesBecause the program does not have to go to a separate database, it saves processing time by performing operations more quickly.
