A database is a collection of data or information. Database management system (DBMS) is a program that manages data in a database. A database could be as simple as a phone book or stock tables, or as sophisticated as a biological repository with terabytes of data.

Relational DBMSs are those that follow the relational data model described by E. D. Codd. Object-oriented databases refer to those that store objects directly, or use mapping technology to store objects instead of simple data entities.
