What is a Stored Procedure?

Applications that use a relational database management system can access stored procedures as a subroutine (RDBMS). These processes are kept in the data dictionary of the database. The only drawback of stored procedures is that they require extra memory on the database server and can only be executed inside the database. Additionally, it offers a sense of usefulness and security because users who are unable to directly access the data can be given access via stored procedures.
