I've used ZODB, the Object Database bundled with Zope. (It's
also useful on it's own.) It's developed by Zope corporation,
the company that has employed the core Python developers, so
for instance Python's creator, Guido van Rossum, is one of
the ZODB developers.


There are also simpler object persistence systems that you
might want to look at.


Finally, you might want to use an object-relational mapper,
to automatically Python instances to SQL table rows. My
favourite in that field is Ian Bicking's SQLObject, but there
is a whole bunch.
