Is it possible to store unstructured data in a database?

Asked a year ago

I've got a question that's been on my mind lately and I was hoping to get some help here. I'm trying to figure out if databases can store unstructured data. I'm not super tech-savvy, but I'm eager to learn more about how databases work and what kind of information they can handle. Any insights would be great!

The short answer is yes. You can store unstructured data in a database.

While traditional relational databases may not be the best choice for unstructured data, many specifically designed databases can easily handle it. These databases can store data in various formats, such as JSON, XML, or plain text. By using these new types of databases, businesses can now store and analyze vast amounts of data that were previously too difficult or even impossible to handle.
