MySQL For large number of files
Posted by: List Andy

Hi all,

I need to efficiently handle a large number of files (upto 1TB in total). The data in question is a large collection of patent documents. Each patent document has sections like name of the person, topic, claim, background etc. I want to be able to store all this information within the database (each section in a separate column, for example). The data will be inserted only one time and I do not need to modify it once it is done. I will only need to be able to issue specific queries across different sections of the documents. For example: give me all documents filed by "person X" that are on "topic Y".

Would MySQL be appropriate for this?

Thanks in advance.
