A complete SQL database with multiple tables, indices, triggers, and views, is contained in a single disk file.
        MongoDB
        MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
        HSQLDB
        It offers a small, fast multi-threaded and transactional database engine with in-memory and disk-based tables and supports embedded and server modes. It includes a powerful command line SQL tool and simple GUI query tools.
        PostgreSQL
        PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system that supports an extended subset of the SQL standard, including transactions, foreign keys, subqueries, triggers, user-defined types and functions.

        As part of the cacheing system within Drupal.

        Memcached mainly took care of creating and rebuilding the REST API cache once changes had been made within Drupal.
