File system vs Data base Management System 1. The files act locally where as DBMS saves directly in a database 2. Saves in temporary locations where as DBMS in well arranged and permanent data base locations 3. In The File Sys., the transactions are not possible where the various operations like insert,delete,view,updating etc r possible in DBMS 4. The data is accessed through single or various files where as in the database system, tables (schema) is used to access data 5. A "File manager" is used to store all relationships in directories in File Systems where as a data base manager (administrator) stores the relationship in form of tables structure 6. Finally.... but no less important.... Data in databases are more secure in comparison with the data in the files!! I hope this thing is use ful to one and all!! :) :) ;) file system is the method for storing and organizing computer files and the data they contain to make it easy to find and access them whereas data base system is a computer software that manages databases. source: wikipedia I also want to know about filebased management system and databasemanagement system pls tell me pls . A computerized database is stored in a computer and is very fast in the organization of the information, and the grouping of related data. A manual of the database is like a file cabinet, slow and clumsy, and you can lose records down the back. The data only can be found quickly in one of the data bits, for example, 'Name', as that will be the only bit visible in the filing cabinet - to find anything that you need to manually go through each file in the cabinet. File system is a system , that the collection of data or files stored in the physical location as a hard disk or cd-rom. And datadase system is an integrated logically-for-data or records in a common fund , from where multiple users can retrieve the data. File systems are containers of collections. The collections are commonly called directories, and which contains a set of data units commonly called files. All database architectures provide structures and methods for organizing data (called rows) in the collections (Tables) that can be updated. The databases have the ability to commit a set of changes in the data as a logical unit, and there are many users doing this at the same time. The main difference is that filesystems are the layer underneath a database. The system database is an application and a set of database files. The database files are part of the file system container. "" 1, A database is an integrated collection of logically related records or files consolidated into a common pool that provides data for one or several uses. A file is a package of information with a name attached to it. 2, the Databases are basically meant piece of data on the relations of the shop, then, so that conditioned recovery is quick and easy. A file is just for more storage for future use. Here the conditions of the recovery is not a significant factor. 3, For the handling of small data sets, the file is more efficient than the database; that is, consider the statistics below, the Test has been performed on a machine (PC) Test without condition! Test with condition where names start with 'A'! File of the operation was the faster of the Database operation was faster (I'm not including the real-time measured ) For simple operations, read, wright, file operations are faster and simple. But the area where the base data is of real use is when there is a conditional data recovery. 4, the Database is the real gift in the area where we have a massive amount of data (including multimedia) and that includes conditional recovery. For file operations are not very tedious operations which involves a processing time.
