Consolidating databases has significant storage benefits, therefore everyone should be doing it

Join the debate

Welcome to a Register Debate in which we pitch our writers against each other, and you – the reader – decide the winning side.

The format is simple: a motion is proposed, for and against arguments are published over the course of a week, during which you can cast your vote here, choosing whether you're in favor or against the motion. The final totals will be announced on Friday. It's up to our writers to convince you to vote for their side.
