1. SQLite : SQLite is a software library that provides a relational database management system (RDBMS). It was designed by D. Richard Hipp in August 2000. The design goals of SQLite were to allow the program to be operated without installing a database management system(DBMS) or requiring a database administrator. 2. Couchbase : Couchbase Server is an open-source, distributed multi-model NoSQL document-oriented database software package that is optimized for interactive applications. It is also known as Membase. It was developed by Couchbase, Inc. and initially released in August 2010.
