1. SQLite : SQLite is a software library that provides relational database management system (RDBMS). It was designed by D. Richard Hipp on 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. Some of the features of MySQL are –

  • High-reliability
  • Embedded
  • Transactions follow ACID properties

2. PostgreSQL : It a powerful, open-source Object-relational database system. It provides good performance with low maintenance efforts because of its high stability. PostgreSQL was the first DBMS that implemented multi-version concurrency control (MVCC) feature. Some of the highlights of PostgreSQL are –

  • Support for vast amount of languages
  • It process advanced Security features
  • It has geo-tagging support

Difference between SQLite and PostgreSQL :

1.Developed by D. Richard Hipp on August 2000.Developed By PostgreSQL Global Development Group on 1989.
2.It is widely used in-process RDBMS.It is widely used open source RDBMS.
3.Implementation language is C.Implementation language is C.
4.It has no Secondary database modelsIt has Document store as Secondary database models
5.It does not supports XML format.It supports XML format.
6.SQLite does not require a server to run. Hence, it is serverless.Server operating systems for PostgreSQL are FreeBSD, Linux, OS X, Solaris and Windows.
7.It does not support Server-side scriptingIt has user defined functions for Server-side scripts
8.It does not support any replication methods.It support only one replication methods Master-master replication.
9.It does not support any Partitioning methods.In PostgreSQL, partitioning can be done by range, list and hash.
10.It supports in-memory capabilities.It does not supports in-memory capabilities.
11.SQLite provides ACID transactions.PostgreSQL also provides ACID transactions.
12.Each database is a file, so databases are mostly isolated from one another.Databases are logical, so you can create as many as you like on a single PostgreSQL server.
