There is also the case of using SQLite where it shares the same process as
your Python code (and nothing else) and is a standard part of the Python

You can add your own functions and collations and if using APSW then you can
also go way further than a regular database and add virtual tables and
virtual storage.

SQLite generally outperforms database servers since there is no cross
process or network communication until you get to larger workloads and/or
concurrent database access which database servers are more tuned for.
