SQL vs. NoSQL
What Does Relational Mean in a Relational Database?
In common usage, the relational part of Relational Database refers to (or is often assumed to refer to) the way tables are related to each other via keys. For the truly pedantic though, this is in in fact incorrect. Relational here does not refer to relationships between tables, rather it refers to the mathematical concept of a relation, which is in essence what relational databases call tables. A relational database is a database based on the relational model.
