CouchDB and Mongo are not RDBMS but at Document-oriented databases. SQLLite has relational features but calling it a full RDBMS is a stretch.

Snowflake or a similar data “engine” as part of a broader data platform that can manage relational, object, graph and stream/telemetry types of data.

Oracle Autonomous Database. It is a multimodel converged database incorporating machine learning-based automation.

As previously noted, Mongo isn’t really an rdbms. However, it has come a long way in supporting flexible schemas and performant relational functionality. We initially adopted it for iterative development of an in-house statistical data dashboard and are currently working on a refactor of that. When looking at alternative traditional rdbms’ or lightweight versions like SQLite, ultimately we found that latest iterations of Mongo support the level of relational separation and transactional modeling we wanted while still offering the flexibility of optimized document store. It’s definitely a contender at small scale, but I’m guessing based on the percent of people who chose it as a “preferred rdbms” here that our experience scales pretty far up, even if not all the way to F5000 size. At those scales though there is rarely less than some mix of data store engines in use with multiple teams (and in at least one client’s case multiple divisions) dedicated just to ETL to glue legacy and new services together across the mix of platforms. P.S. Snowflake comes up a lot too.

I had trouble pointing one database. Some are relational, some are document databases. It's like comparing a hammer and a screwdriver, which is better? When comparing databases agnostically of the purpose, then I'd choose security, performance, scalability, and availability as the main parameters.

I think DB's planet scale can offer a different view on RDBMS usage.

SQLServer carries over a considerable number of legacy apps and code on it, but many of the others are more suitable for RD. Surprised not seeing mySQL on the list...
