Best relational database management software

A Database Management System (DBMS) is described as a set of computer programs that manages the creation, maintenance, and administration of a database. It is a system software package that supports the use of unified collection of data records and files known as databases. A DBMS could utilize any of a variety of database models, such as the network model or relational model.

A relational database management system (RDBMS) is a DBMS in which data is stored in the form of tables, and the relationship among the data is stored in the form of tables as well. Nowadays, majority of popular commercial and open-source databases are based on the relational database model.

For those of you who are interested, I have here a list of some of the best Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) for Linux (in no particular order):


MySQL is a central component of the widely used LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP/Python) web application software stack. It is a common choice of database in web applications and is used in many well-known websites, including Google, Facebook, Wikipedia and YouTube. In addition, free software projects that need a full-featured database management system often use MySQL. Some of the popular free software projects using it are WordPress, MyBB, Drupal, and Joomla. MySQL is written in C and C++. Its SQL parser is written in yacc, and a home-brewed lexical analyzer named The main features of MySQL include SSL support, query caching, embedded database library, True Varchar support, updatable views, and more. It also provides features that other RDBMS systems may not, such as multiple storage engines (native, partner-developed, and community-developed storage engines) and commit grouping.

Apache Derby

Apache Derby is an open source relational database management system (RDBMS) that is based on Java, JDBC, and SQL standards. The project's main aim is to provide a data management system that is easy to install, deploy, and use. Apache Derby has a 2.6 MB disk-space footprint, which contains the base engine and embedded JDBC driver. And since it provides an embedded JDBC driver, you could easily place it in any Java-based solution. Apache Derby supports the more standard client/server mode with the Derby Network Client JDBC driver and Derby Network Server. The network server maximizes the reach of the Derby database engine by allowing traditional client server operation. It also allows clients to connect over TCP/IP using the standard DRDA protocol and enables the Derby engine to support networked JDBC, ODBC/CLI, Perl and PHP.
