Relational DataBase Management Systems (RDBMSs) today are the predominant technology for storing. In the past few years, the \"One size fits all\"-thinking concerning data stores has been questioned by both, science and web affine companies, which has lead to the emergence of a great variety of alternative databases. There has been an enormous growth in the distributed databases area in the last few years, especially with the NOSQL movement. Keeping this as a motivation, this paper aims at giving a systematic overview of DBMS, discusses about the change from traditional file processing to RDS & ends with NOSQL.
