DBMS is a collection of interrelated data and a set of programs to store & access those data in an easy and effective manner and In Relational database, data is organized in form of tables. A table contains rows and columns of data.
Although DBMS and RDBMS both are used to store information in the database still there are some major differences between them.
The main differences between DBMS and RDBMS are given below-
|1||DBMS stands for Database Management System||RDBMS stands for Relational Database Management System|
|2||DBMS is a collection of interrelated data and a set of programs to store & access those data in an easy and effective manner.||Relational database, data is organized in form of tables. A table contains rows and columns of data. Table has a unique key to identify each row of the table.|
|3||In DBMS, data is generally stored in either a hierarchical form or a navigational form.||In RDBMS, the tables have an identifier called primary key and the data values are stored in the form of tables.|
|4||DBMS has to provide some uniform methods to access the stored information.||RDBMS system supports a tabular structure of the data and a relationship between them to access the stored information.|
|5||DBMS does not support distributed database.||RDBMS supports distributed database.|
|6||DBMS does not apply any security with regards to data manipulation.||RDBMS defines the integrity constraint for the purpose of ACID (Atomocity, Consistency, Isolation and Durability) property.|
|7||Normalization is not present in DBMS.||Normalization is present in RDBMS.|
|8||DBMS supports Single User only||RDBMS supports multiple users|
|9||It requires less Software and Hardware Requirements.||It requires High software and hardwares|
|10||DBMS does not support client / server architecture.||RDBMS supports client/server architecture.|
|11||ACID properties of database must be implemented by the user or the developer||ACID properties of the database are defined in the integrity constraints.|
|12||Examples of DBMS are file systems, xml etc.||Example of RDBMS are mysql, postgre, sql server, oracle etc.|
|13||DBMS applications store data as file.||RDBMS applications store data in a tabular form.|
After observing the differences between DBMS and RDBMS, you can say that RDBMS is an extension of DBMS.
