    That probably depends on your design.

    too much data in a single table might reduce performance.

    If you are talking about flat and relational database then.A database system generally provides on-line access to the database for many users. In contrast, a conventional system is often designed to meet a specific need and therefore generally provides access to only a small number of users. Because of the larger number of users accessing the data when a database is used, the enterprise may involve additional risks as compared to a conventional data processing system in the following areas. 1.Confidentiality privacy and security. 2.Data quality. 3.Data integrity. 4.Enterprise vulnerability may be higher. 5.The cost of using DBMS. but at the end of the day i would say relational database are best
