What is an open source database?

An open source database is any database application with a codebase that is free to view, download, modify, distribute, and reuse. Open source licenses give developers the freedom to build new applications off of existing database technologies.

People also ask:

1. Relational vs. Non-relational (NoSQL) databases

Databases can be broadly categorized into two groups:

  • Relational databases: The traditional data storage architecture for storing structured data. Key value pairs are used to store information into tables consisting of columns and rows. Database queries are conducted using SQL.

  • Non-relational (NoSQL) databases: An alternative data storage architecture well suited to storing unstructured data. Document data stores, column-oriented databases, key-value stores and graph databases are all examples of NoSQL databases. While many of these NoSQL databases technically support SQL-compatible queries, the underlying query strategy is fundamentally different.

2. What are some examples of open-source relational databases?

Common examples of open-source relational databases include:

  • PostGreSQL

  • MySQL

  • MariaDB

  • SQLite

  • CockroachDB

3. What are some examples of open-source NoSQL databases?

Common examples of open-source NoSQL databases include:

  • MongoDB

  • CouchDB

  • Cassandra

  • Redis

  • Neo4j
