Database Systems => DBMSs

less than 1 minute read


DBMS or Database Management Systems refer to software that is used to power a database. The simplest form is a single user database program such as Microsoft Access, but can expand out into MS SQL Server or MySQL. I plan to keep learning about the different options as far as DBMS software, but for now just MS SQL Server and MySQL caught my attention.

NOTE: SQL Server will always take as much memory as you allow regardless if it needs it or not. Keep this in mind when provisioning VM’s for SQL servers. Recommended 8 GB+

Software Vendors:

  1. MySQL => Open sources DBMS.

  2. MS SQL Server => Microsoft.

  3. Oracle

  4. DB2
