Recommended light weight/ embedded database suitable for production

Hey Folks,

I’m looking for a recommendation regarding light weight/ embedded database which I can run as a docker container even in production environment for my .NET application. I’ve already considered SQLite DB but it seems SQLIte is not recommended for production.
Looking forward to your valuable recommendations. Let me know if you need any more info.


We’re certainly using SQLite in production (though not running in a separate container; just using embedded libraries in other code). All depends on your requirements, so you may want to tell us a bit more?
