The differences between the file system and the database management system are:
|DBMS is just a collection of data, and the user is not required to write any of the procedures.
|The file system is also a collection of data, but in the file system, the user has to write all the procedures required for managing the data.
|DBMS offers a view of the data in an abstract manner and hides the details of the data.
|The file system offers all the data available in the system to the viewer.
|DBMS offers extra protection in the form of crash mechanism where data is preserved even in case of severe failure.
|The file system does not offer such protection, and once the data is lost, it is lost forever.
|The data under DBMS is offered excellent protection.
|File system and its data is hard to protect.
|DBMS offers comprehensive techniques for easier access.
|No such techniques are available in the file system.
|Concurrent access is possible in DBMS.
|Two users cannot access the same data simultaneously because it is stored at a single place and hence can be accessed only by an individual user at a time.
