Data Structure

Data Structure is the way of arranging information in a database so that it becomes easy to access information whenever needed. For Example, consider an attendance register of a class which is not properly managed. Like the pages are not arranged according to a proper sequence. If you arrange it in a sequence (either date-wise or in any other sequence), you form a data structure which has a particular sequence of accessing the details of the register.

Data structure is a way of representing the data in an organized manner. The word structure clearly tells that it has something to do with the structure of the data.

Database

Database is the collection of various records in a formatted manner, like a table, which helps in storing large amount of information having common attributes or simply common headings.  For Example, the attendance register of a class can be considered as a database which has the information about all the students that are stored in a table format under the attributes like name, roll number, absent or present. 

Every database in the world has some kind of data structure implemented on it. Database refers to the collection of records that can be used for all kinds of purposes. It is better that we have a specific data structure implemented on the database which makes it easier for others to search any specific record easily

Hi Angel,

Data structures are internal representation of a given data. It can be a stack, heap, linked list or anything else that can be presented internally into the machine. Data structure may be or may not be stored in a database during the process.

A database consist of a collection of data and information which is organized to be able to accessed and managed easily. It can be classified into different types which is bibliographic, full-text, numeric and images. It can also be classified by their approach to the organization. In the computer context, they usually contains data records or files.

To distinguish between the two, a definition for each would be most appropriate. A data structure, generally known in computer science, is a specialized format for organizing and storing data so that it can be used more efficiently. it is basically an internal representation of the data – which may be a list, a stack, arrays or anything imaginable and represented internally to the machine. It is used in almost every program or software system. A database, on the other hand, is an organized collection of data, in digital form, for easy accessibility, manageability and upgrade. It contains typically an aggregation of data records, such as inventories or sales transactions.
