  • Properties of Database

Traditional File Systems Vs Modern Database Management Systems



Hence, a data base management system is the software that manages a database, and is responsible for its storage, security, integrity, concurrency, recovery and access.  
The DBMS has a data dictionary, referred to as system catalog, which stores data about everything it holds, such as names, structure, locations and types.  This data is also referred to as Meta data.

Properties of Database

The following are the important properties of Database:
1. A database is a logical collection of data having some implicit meaning.
If the data are not related then it is not called as proper database. E.g. Student studying in class II got 5th  rank.


2. A database consists of both data as well as the description of the database structure and constraints.  E.g. 


3. A database can have any size and of various complexity. If we consider the above example of employee database the name and address of the employee may consists of very few records each with simple structure. E.g. 


Like this there may be „n number of records.
4. The DBMS is considered as general-purpose software system that facilitates the process of defining, constructing and manipulating databases for various applications.
5. A database provides insulation between programs, data and data abstraction. Data abstraction is a feature that provides the integration of the data source of interest and helps to leverage the physical data however the structure is.
6. The data in the database is used by variety of users for variety of purposes. For E.g. when you consider a hospital database management system the view of usage of patient database is different from the same used by the doctor. In this case the data are stored separately for the different users. In fact it is stored in a single database. This property is nothing but multiple views of the database.    
7. Multiple user DBMS must allow the data to be shared by multiple users simultaneously.  For this purpose the DBMS includes concurrency control software to ensure that the updating done to the database by variety of users at single time must get updated correctly. This property explains the multiuser transaction processing.
