database with CF

What is the easiest soft to use to create databases that will work fine with CF?

I will have to create databases that can handle lot of datas and I'd like something easy to learn and use, not like DB2 and I think Access is not the best for lot of datas (but I might be wrong).

Thanks

I would certainly consider SQL Server.  I have generated many systems using Access and then moved to SQL Server which is a) inexpensive, b) internet friendly, an c) runs great with CF.

Hi!

I not agree completely with PDLINES. ;-)

SQL Server is good for middle load sites, but if you want the best response, technology and support programs, use Oracle DB Server.

You can access them trought the client directly, not trought OLE DB (ODBC) like SQL Server, impacting directly in the overall perfomance.

Also:
Oracle is not expensive.
Oracle is used by the most famous high volume sites.
Oracle is Internet friendly (SURE).
And it also runs great with CF.

Only a different opinion,
