Many suggestions in this thread use "Database" interchangeably with
"Database Management System". The latter is a little verbose, but
"Database System" should be concise enough for a slogan without losing
the meaning.

We need to remind people that a DBMS isn't just a place to stash data,
it's a complete system. This also differentiates us from the NoSQL
crowd, which seems much more confused about the distinction between a
database and the system that manages it (for example, the mixing of data
and schema is prevalent among those using KV stores or tree/graph
systems).
