Here's my hot debate contribution: PostgreSQL is the better MariaDB in every category I could imagine. The only thing that sucks in it is the upgrade procedure; but then again, that's difficult with every production database.

Usually I vote Sqlite for oh so many reasons.... Small, extremely fast, rock solid, powerful, ...

But this year I'm voting Postgres as they have been adding a flock of nifty stuff in the last few releases.

Yeah, Postgres definitely did a good job this year. Absolutely my vote.

I don't use Postgres because I'm heavily entrenched in mysql/mariadb and have no compelling reasons to change....if it ain't broke... Maybe one day I'll migrate....

Why no MS SQL - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/sql-...ql-server-2017 ? Imported same data with same indices, etc, and on pretty much all queries it ran faster than PostgreSQL.

Price is a b****, but man oh man is it good.

If Percona is on the list, which is just another MySQL implementation, why is EnterpriseDB missing (same for PostgreSQL)?

We prune nominees that have gotten 0 votes, but with sufficient demand they can always be re-added.

I just use MySQL everywhere. They say there are better options, like PostgreSQL. Perhaps, but MySQL does all I need (except filesystem-based snapshot backups with quiesce, last time I checked).
