Relational Databases

Last updated Feb 9, 2024

In contrast to the Relational Model, a relational database is a practical implementation of the relational model.

It’s an actual database management system that uses the principles of the relational model to store and manage data. Examples include MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Oracle.

These databases use SQL for accessing and managing the data. They are built upon the theoretical framework of the relational model but include additional features like transaction management, concurrency control, and various optimizations for efficiency.
