RDBMS stands for Relational Database Management System. It is a type of software that is used to manage relational databases, which are databases that organize data into one or more tables, with each table consisting of rows and columns.
An RDBMS is designed to efficiently store, retrieve, and manage large amounts of data while ensuring data integrity and security. The software allows users to create, modify, and query databases using a standardized language called Structured Query Language (SQL).
In an RDBMS, the relationships between different tables are defined through the use of keys and constraints. This allows data to be efficiently linked across tables, reducing data duplication and improving data consistency.
RDBMSs are widely used in a variety of applications and industries, including finance, healthcare, manufacturing, and e-commerce. Popular RDBMSs include MySQL, Oracle Database, Microsoft SQL Server, PostgreSQL, and SQLite.
