No vote from me

MySQL is very good for much of what I do.
PostgreSQL is better for other things.

For my current project I am using OrientDB which doesn't yet have the traction to warrant inclusion in the list but it answers much of the criticisms that I would generally have of NOSQL databases.

Take a look at it, friends. You will likely find it a better fit for some of your requirements.

Thumbs up Data-At-Rest Encryption with MariaDB

A new feature of MariaDB 10.1, Data-At-Rest Encryption, makes it even more different to MySQL
