Depends on your knowledge. If you are familiar with Linux, use it! Use Microsoft otherwise. Google for optimization settings for your database system and revise the structure if needed.

I would go with Linux since I'm proficient with the CLI.
But also because the costs are lower, i/o handling and memory management is way better and you'll have better support when setting things up and fixing problems you might face.

Need to be more specific with your question , depends on how much data is in the database ect

The question is vague. Not a kind of a good one.
Which type of database are you going to use? MySQL? Postgresql? Elasticsearch, etc?
What is the size of that "large" database?
What is that database serving for? Web/desktop applications?
What is the stack that your team/company are using?
etc

I simply find that the processing speed of linux with text is much faster than that of win.
