Database Management

Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMSs) continue to do the heavy lifting in data management, while newer database management systems are taking on prominent roles as well. NoSQL database systems such as Key-Value, Column Family, Graph, and Document databases, are gaining acceptance due to their ability to handle unstructured and semi-structured data. MultiValue, sometimes called the fifth NoSQL database, is also a well-established database management technology which continues to evolve to address new enterprise requirements.

NoSQL databases, also referred to as non-relational, continue to grow in popularity both on-premises and in the cloud. Of the 395 different database management systems tracked by site DB-engines, more than half are non-relational. These include key-value, document, graph, time series, and many more database models that fall into the NoSQL category. As more organizations modernize their applications or develop new applications from scratch, they adopt a microservices-based architecture that allows them to take advantage of the benefits of NoSQL databases

Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database service that supports transactional processing and analytics. With a 30-plus year history, SQL Server has been a mainstay at many organizations. Now, however, open-source technologies like PostgreSQL, have become increasingly popular for customers. More and more customers are migrating to them from overpriced, restrictive commercial databases that lock them in. With an increasing array of choices, the same organizations are looking for lower cost options, including low-cost, cloud-native, fully managed database services like Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL-Compatible Edition, as this lowers total cost of ownership while providing the desired performance.
