Data technology selection advice RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am new to vs2010 and need to build a winclient db app for around 30 concurrent users. What database technologies are best suited for this purpose from amongst several available in vs20101. Naturally I'm looking for quicker turnaround time and easy maintainability.

    Many Thanks

    Regards

  • I would go for and ORM such as Entity framework or NHibernate.

  • Not sure how much data you will be storing in the database, but 30 concurrent users might be an issue for a file based database such as Microsoft Access. I would look at either SQL Server or SQL Server Express.
