<database, storage>

A logical unit of storage used by an Oracle database. A tablespace is made up of one or more operating system files. Each table, index or other object that requires storage is located in a tablespace.

The database administrator typically assigns a default and a temporary tablespace to each user and grants a quota on each so they can create tables and indexes.
