The SunPy database module enables users to manage files on a disk, or a network hosted database. Users can find files by using physical parameters such as wavelength, time etc. or by using attributes such as instrument name. Queries can also be combined to form complex queries.

The first part of the project would involve making several modifications to the database module used by SunPy to integrate the Fido interface with the database which will enable users to use only the Fido to make queries, instead of making separate queries for separate clients like VSO, LightCurve etc.

The second part involves improving the caching mechanism to enable query result based caching instead of the current query based caching.
