Sorry Andreas..

My product is rewritten in python placed in the product folder. So yes, it is a 
instance of a class. 

In the future, I will be storing more data into one instance from other dbase 
file (The total columns may vary).

I'm still in the developing stage and this is just a test run to know that is 
the length of processing time I'm look at. I want each entry to be an instance 
because I'm planning to create other interactive functions (edit and 
query(ZCatalog maybe, I'm not sure yet) and more ) for particular info.

I've never thought of using a BTree because I don't know enough about it. I'll 
look into it but will BTree still be a better choice than making instance if 
I'm going to make interactive functions?

Any other suggestions?

Please name things the right way. A "Product" is basically a Zope/Python 
package that contains definitions of classes, scripts, templates etc.

You mean instances of a particular class?

You're creating 110k instances for storing a string and two floats?
If yes, that's stupid idea.

You can persistent large amounts of data within a single instances
by using Zope BTrees.

What kind of processing?
