    EAV is entity attribute value database model, where data is fully in normalized form.

    The flat model uses just one table, so it’s not normalized and uses more database space.

    EAV is an entity attribute value database model, where data is fully in normalized form. Each column data value is stored in their respective data type table.
    On the other hand, the Flat model uses only one table, therefore it’s not normalized and uses more database space. It clears the EAV overhead

    It’s good when comes to performance, as it will only require one query to load whole product instead of joining 5-6 tables to get just one product’s details.

    In the flat model, columns are called fields.

    EAV

    EAV is an entity attribute value database model, where data is fully in normalized form. Each column data value is stored in their respective data type table. For instance, for a product,

    product ID is stored in catalog_product_entity_int table,

    product name in catalog_product_entity_varchar table,

    product price in catalog_product_entity_decimal table,

    product created date in catalog_product_entity_datetime table,

    product description in catalog_product_entity_text table.

    EAV is composite of 5 to 6 tables even if you just want to get one productís details.

    Every column is called an attribute in EAV.


    Flat

    On the other hand, the Flat model uses only one table, therefore itís not normalized and uses more database space. It clears the EAV overhead

    Itís good when comes to performance, as it will only require one query to load whole product instead of joining 5-6 tables to get just one productís details.

    In the flat model, columns are called fields.

    Magento implemented indexers which will periodically query the standard collections and populate flat database tables in following format. Where * is store id.

    catalog_category_flat_store_*

    catalog_product_flat_*

    These tables have non-normalized product and category data thatís intended to be read only. This allows Magento to fetch category and product data in a single query.
