The MusicBrainz Database is an SQL database that contains all the information about artists, release groups, releases, recordings, advanced relationships (and everything else between them, but also the MusicBrainz users (editors) and the changes they entered into the database (edits). MusicBrainz currently uses PostgreSQL as its underlying database software.

The database can be downloaded standalone from the MusicBrainz website. To setup your own fresh copy of the database, and import the data, see the relevant section of the the INSTALL guide.
