I have been building data mining solutions within relational databases. Almost every process is done within the database environment. We enjoy the functions provided by databases: security, scalability, analytic functions, manageability, easy model deployment, SQL, etc. Since data mining is done on the server side, the crash of my laptop hard drive has minimum impact on my work (it happened twice in the last two years).
