When data of different locations/branches/states are stored in only 1 locations/server that is called Centralised Database. Lets learn it with a example :-
Assume, In India 🇮🇳 there is a bank whose name is City Bank and it has total 5 branches in 5 different states Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, Gujrat and Goa and its main branch is Delhi branch and the data of all 5 branches are stored in Delhi branch’s server. So that’s called Centralised Database where whole data are is stored in 1 server or computer.
When data stores on different locations /servers that is called Distributed Database. You can understand it by connecting it to real life example. Assume you have 5 computer and data of every computer is saved in that computer. That is called Distributed Database.
An Cloud Database is a type of Database where data stored in virtual environment/computer. We can access it by using Cloud Computing. Some of the best Cloud Service providers are Amazon Web Service(AWS), Microsoft Azure, PhonixNAP, Kamatera, Google Cloud SQL, ScienceSoft, etc.
This Database also known as Not Only SQL Database this is used to store large amount of data. NoSQL Database not stored Data only in tuples it can also stores data in different forms. NoSQL Database concept is introduced when demand of modern applications is increased in market like Facebook, Instagram and many other Social Media Platforms.
