Or a read-mostly database, which is very common in the so-called
"data warehousing" market space. I'm personally using a "data base"
(currently a collection of flat files...) of moderate size (5-10GB)
that is updated about 2 or 3 times a year. Read performance is all
that matters.

At the moment, it's not using *any* database management system. :-(
