Gen_server and states

Hi,

I am currently working on behaviours. My question is about the state of the
gen_server.
>From what I understand, this "state" is supposed to stored the data managed by
the server.
Is this correct ?

How would you put up with a server as soon as you get a huge amount of data,
that cannot fit into your RAM ? Would you use a mnesia table or Dets and use
the state as an handler to those data ?

Is there alternative solutions ?

Thanks in advance for your help.
