What can be stored in databases?

Question

In the context of this exercise, what can be stored in databases?

Answer

Databases can be used to store several types of data. The most common data types include text values, integers, float values, dates, and time.

The data types listed above work for most values, but sometimes databases may need to store values that require more memory than the types allow. In those cases, databases might store what are known as CLOB (Character large object), used for very long text values, or BLOB (binary large object values) types, which are used for multimedia objects like images or audio.
