Local Database Selection RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    Please provide me with some enlightenment.

    I am developing an application for managing scientific experiments. Now it has to work offline most of the time (since it will be used for field trials on areas where no internet access)

    I am having trouble with the use of local database. I am expecting the data to be really large (in gigabytes).

    Should I use a local database (since the data are relational) or a custom structured file?

    If I have to use a local database, What should I use? Should I prefer entity framework (code first new database) to do things?

    Sorry for the non comprehensive questions. I just don't know what database to use and when to use them.
