The research currently conducted in various fields of interest base their experiments on the eye movement signal analysis. Among these areas cognitive studies on people’s willingness, intentions or skills and advanced interface design can be enumerated. There are also some studies attempting to apply the eye tracking in security tasks and biometric identification. During these experiments a lot of data is registered, which has to be stored for further analyses. This research purpose is to find efficient structures for managing data gathered in such a way. Four different storages were chosen: Oracle, Excel, MongoDB and Cassandra systems that were examined during various task realizations.
