database machine
Jump to user comments
A computer or special hardware that stores and retrieves data
from a database. It is specially designed for database
access and is coupled to the main (front-end) computer(s) by
a high-speed channel. This contrasts with a databaseserver, which is a computer in a local area network that
holds a database. The database machine is tightly coupled to
the main CPU, whereas the database server is loosely coupled
via the network.
