🔵Data Structure: Organizes data into structured tables with rows and columns.

🔵Schema: Fixed and predefined; requires data normalization.

🔵Query Language: SQL (Structured Query Language) for managing and retrieving data.

🔵Scalability: Generally scaled vertically, which can be costly.

🔵Integrity: Enforces data integrity through ACID properties and relational constraints.

🔵Examples: MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle.


🔴Data Structure: More flexible, handling a wide range of data types with dynamic schemas.

🔴Schema: Schema-less or with a flexible schema; allows for denormalization.

🔴Query Language: No declarative query language; uses various methods depending on the system.

🔴Scalability: Designed for horizontal scalability, often at a lower cost.

🔴Integrity: Data consistency varies depending on the NoSQL type; may not strictly enforce ACID properties.

🔴Examples: MongoDB, Cassandra, Redis, Couchbase.

In essence, RDBMS is well-suited for applications requiring complex queries and strict data consistency, while NoSQL excels in scenarios demanding scalability, flexibility, and handling of varied data types
