Database is an organised collection of data or information so that it can be easily accessed, updated or manipulated.

Database management system (DBMS) is a software that manages database on a computer. Eg. microsoft access, MySQL, oracle etc.

Database are classified according to their organisational approach.

Few of them are listed below :
  1. Relational database :- A tabular database in which data is defined so that it can be reorganized and accessed in a number of different ways. It stores data in tables with relationships to other tables.
  2. Distributed database :- A distributed database is one that can be dispersed or replicated among different point in a network.
  3. Object oriented programming database :- In this database, the data is defined in object classes and sub classes.
MySQL, a popular DBMS used online is an example of object oriented DBMS.

The database holds the records, fields, cells ..with data. The DBMS is the "tools" used to manipulate the data in the database. An example of a DBMS is SQL Server.
The DBMS is the database engine itself. This is the core, the actual program that contains the logic to execute your SQL statements. performs that actual data access based upon these commands (relationaly).
whereas DS is linked with improving the speed of traversing and searching the data in main memory.
As we all know that the processor can only process the data that is available in main memory. Therefore the different models used to organize data in main memory are collectively referred as DS.
In DBMS Normalization process wille not be present and in
RDBMS normalization process will be present to check the
database table cosistency.
nice post for DBMS purpose.

Hi,
As it is already explained very well by given answers.
Database is nothing but collection of data, information like files, tables(cells, records) etc.
Database management system as its lateral meaning shows its a system to manage database.
it includes following functionality:
->how to store data
->how to display data
->how to manipulate data

for example SQL Server data base management system
Database : SQL database : collection of tables
System Fucntionality:
DDL-> how to store data: query like create, alter, insert...
DML-> how to manipulate data: query like update, select...
DCL-> how to control data : query like Commit, rollback, savepoints...

Hope you would be getting some idea.

Regards,
Neel

I’d like to scrap some old childhood photos of myself. My Aunt gave them to me and I’d like to get those into an album.
