Best Relational Database


A relational database is a set of formally described tables from which data can be accessed or reassembled in many different ways without having to reorganize the database tables.

The standard user and application programming interface (API) of a relational database is the Structured Query Language (SQL). SQL statements are used both for interactive queries for information from a relational database and for gathering data for reports.

There are a number of database categories, from basic flat files that aren't relational to NoSQL to newer graph databases that are considered even more relational than standard relational databases.

According to Craig S. Mullins, president & principal consultant, Mullins Consulting, Inc, relational continues to dominate: IDC forecasts that relational DBs will still account for more than 80% of the total operational database market through 2022, and Gartner forecasts that through 2020, relational technology will continue to be used for at least 70% of new applications and projects.
