flat file
Explanation:
a flat-file database is a relatively simple database system in which each database is contained in a single table. In contrast, relational database systems can use multiple tables to store information, and each table can have a different record format. Relational systems are more suitable for large applications, but flat databases are adequate for many small applications.

Hope it helps.
