You're asking correctly, and according to the Hackage list:


we have:

     * anydbm library and program: Interface for DBM-like database systems
     * BerkeleyDB library: Bindings for Berkeley DB v1.x
     * haskelldb library: SQL unwrapper for Haskell.
     * HDBC library
     * hsql library
     * PostgreSQL library: Thin wrapper over the C postgresql library

We also have Data.Binary and Data.ByteString, but those are more useful
for building data stores, than as data stores themselves.
