Storage format / engine for my database
Posted on 2012-12-31
I have a data set with ~7 million 32-character strings. I am trying to find the most efficient storage for it.
It needs to be encrypted.
It needs fast searching.
It needs to be stand-alone.
It needs to be as compact as possible for online distribution.
I have tried Absolute Database but the resulting data file is about 800K.
I tried mOrmot SQLite3 and the data file is about 400K.
I tried a simple in-memory string list but it gobbles up about 450K of RAM.
What are my options?
