>
>Could you advise on selecting a database for a Web application? 
>
>I am developing a Web application that will store user requests 
>containing multiple text strings. I estimate the number of requests to 
>reach the 100 thousands and each record would be approximately 2k in size.
>The text fields average 512k each.
>
>The database should have good text search functions as well as an 
>efficient way of locating records based on their text content. 
>
>I don't know what other things to consider in this type of application, 
>please make any suggestions you feel are important.

>Thanks for your help,
