Database Management System [DBMS]


A database [collection of related records] and the software is referred to as the database management system or DBMS.

Databases have a number of inherent properties to ensure the data is managed to ensure its integrity and quality. There is no standard definition of this.

Database management systems are usually categorized according to the data model that they support: relational, object-relational, network, and so on.

An RDBMS supports a relational database model, the most common database structure.

The data model will tend to determine the query languages that are available to access the database.

A DBMS is independent of the data model, and is concerned with managing factors such as performance, concurrency, integrity, and recovery from hardware failures. There are large differences between DBMS products.
