What is Database and Data Redundancy?
A database is a collection of information and data in a structured manner for easy access when needed. This is electronically stored in a computer system or a cloud in some cases.
Typically, data redundancy occurs in a database. It can alternately occur in a file storage system as well. Both ways, it may create problems for the user.
Data redundancy is the occurrence of a particular set of information or data in more than one place on a computer system. It can sometimes be used to cross-check data and as a backup method to protect specific data.
