"(computing) An individual database extension." This is not familiar to me. What is a database extension? I wonder whether it could be a garbled attempt at the other computing sense I just added (which can be found on Wikipedia too): "(computing) A contiguous area of storage in a file system."

RFV failed, sense removed. The creator may have been confused by the fact that in some database products, such as Oracle, you can add extents to an object such as a table, which means you're extending the storage available to the object; but extent there is the same as in the sense you added. —RuakhTALK 17:23, 31 July 2010 (UTC)
