I'm looking for better data base architecture to insert the >800000 records for day and very new to DB.

My requirement is

There is a more then >500 sensors continuously send the data for every second(24/7). I need to collect the data from sensors,
1.To be store in data base,
2.Need to be take the back up for every 1-2 minute,
3.Need to create the separate table for Reporting,
4.I need to create separate DB for alerts like if captured temperature is >50 deg then store data in normal dB or if <50 store in alert DB.

Do you have a starting point? Is there something you can post , which we can review?
How do the sensors connect ? is there an app - using ODBC? or some other method?
Are they just writing to one table?
Is the data summarised and purged?
