The database holds the records, fields, cells ..with data. The DBMS is the "tools" used to manipulate the data in the database. An example of a DBMS is SQL Server.

The DBMS is the database engine itself. This is the core, the actual program that contains the logic to execute your SQL statements. performs that actual data access based upon these commands (relationaly).

whereas DS is linked with improving the speed of traversing and searching the data in main memory.

As we all know that the processor can only process the data that is available in main memory. Therefore the different models used to organize data in main memory are collectively referred as DS.

A DBMS stores data in a table where the entries are filed under a specific category and are properly indexed. This allowed programmers to have a lot more structure when saving or retrieving data. A relational database contains data in more than one table. Each table contains a database that is then linked to other tables with respect to their relationships.

The distinction between database schema and database state is very important. When we define a new database, we specify its database schema only to the DBMS. At this point, the corresponding database state is the empty state with no data. We get the initial state of the database when the database is first populated or loaded with the initial data. From then on, every time an update operation is applied to the database, we get another database state. At any point in time, the database has a current state. The DBMS is partly responsible for ensuring that every state of the database is a valid state-that is, a state that satisfies the structure and constraints specified in the schema. The DBMS stores the descriptions of the schema constructs and constraints-also called the meta-data-in the DBMS catalog so that DBMS software can refer to the schema whenever it needs to. The schema is sometimes called the intension, and a database state an extension of the schema.
