We report the comparison between the two leading type of Database storage components prevailing in the industry. The Database is largely concerned with managing massive amount of data in a consistent, stable, repeatable and quick manner. The prominent features of both relational as well as non relational databases have been specified which form the basis of the comparison between the two types of database. The relational model is based on mathematical theory(set theory, relational theory) whereas the non- relational databases may or may not have a single groundwork mathematical theory. Relational model is beneficial when it comes to reliability, flexibility, robustness, scalability requirements but in order to cater to the needs of modern applications where the data is huge and generally unstructured; Non-relational databases show true signs of usability here. Based on the characteristics, commonly used tools of relational and non relational databases are mentioned along with brief introduction of the tools. Comparison has been done between the tools to notify the distinctive features of tools of relational and non relational database. Conclusive remarks about the two categories of database have been mentioned.
