A data store is a data repository of a set of integrated objects. These objects are modeled using classes defined in database schemas.[1] Data store includes not only data repositories like databases, it is a more general concept that includes also flat files that can store data.[2]

Some data stores do represent data in only one schema, while other data stores use several schemas for this task. An example are RDBMS-based data stores like MySQL or PostgreSQL.
