A database is an organized collection of information.  It is structured so you can jump to the information by using a key, and find related infromation by navigating a path.  A sequential (flat)  file is not considered a database. 

A relational database contains one-to-many relationships.

A networked database contains one-to-many and many-to-many relationships.
