I am just a beginner in MySQL, I need to know how much data can be stored in MySQL. I am developing a web crawler, can I store all the data in MySQL, or do I need to use another Database? Which is more faster? What I mean is, which has the highest Writing/Reading Rate? Do I need to reconfigure to add more data?
Depends on the operating system.
**Operating System** **File-size Limit** Win32 w/ FAT/FAT32 2GB/4GB Win32 w/ NTFS 2TB (possibly larger) Linux 2.2-Intel 32-bit 2GB (LFS: 4GB) Linux 2.4+ 4TB Solaris 9/10 16TB MacOS X w/ HFS+ 2TB NetWare w/NSS file system 8TB
Your write/read rate is of pretty much no concern to you, your bottleneck is going to be your internet connection.
