SQL database for embedded computer


Thread Starter


I'm using Moxa (W325) embedded computer as the logger for telemetry data. What SQL database can I use for this application?

Looks like this is Linux, so the obvious choice would be MySQL. Of course, there are dozens of others. PostgreSQL bills themselves as being more robust than MySQL. BerkeleyDB is an old favorite. Both MySQL and BerkeleyDB are now owned by Oracle, prompting a fork of MySQL called MariaDB. SQLite is supposed to be easy to use. Firebird has fierce adherents. These even some oddball ones like MonetDB/SQL.

Basically, anything that will compile on Linux out to work. I would start with SQLite, due to its small size and ease of use. If that didn't work out then MySQL would be next on the list.

Good luck.
