    kept in/on a database

    If I google (data, information) "kept in a database" and "kept on a database", I get lots of hits for both options. I am wondering if they are both correct and can be used interchangeably.
    What can native speakers of English say about this?
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: kept in/on a database

    I'd always use "in", never "on".
