How do I create a database in SalesForce?

How can I create a database in SalesForce. I don't care about the language, I just want to be able to make a large capacity database that I can interact with via SalesForce, Apex, or VisualForce. Currently my solution seems to run out of memory. I have read in-to MySQL, PHP, etc - however I can't find a way that SalesForce can interact with these. I have also heard of Cloud Database or Force.com, however, I again, haven't been able to see examples or anything that would actually help me beyond an advert. Can anyone lend a hand?

Hi Jon,

Salesforce has its own cloud based data storage system which takes care of all your secured data. We can always created Custom Objects (Tables with Fields) apart from Out of the Box provided Objects and store your data under them. Here is the link to Force.com Database (https://developer.salesforce.com/page/An_Introduction_to_Force_Database) artical and hope this finds you the right information that you are looking for.




Thank you
