Using an external Database or using Outystems Database

Using an external Database or using Outystems Database

  

I understand that if we use external database managing that database is done by us. But will there be any other parameters to compare like Network latency, database inconsistency etc. I need to understand what is the best architecture to have.

I have a use case where users will be entering data on daily basis.

HI Neha,

This totally depends upon the requirement to go for external database. Using Outsystems database is always better to leverage the platform default feature and other capabilities(like multi tenancy , tenant views , query optimization).Also you cannot always control the external database and any change there may break things for you.

Other parameter like Network latency\performance  is depends upon many thing like data volume , network speed etc, and this may happen to OS database as well.

Using external database is always an option with platform but we should only use it when required.
