Recently, the 2023 Technology Survey report by Stack Overflow showed that PostgreSQL, with a usage rate of 45.55%, has surpassed MySQL (41.09%) to become the most popular database. Especially among professional developers, PostgreSQL is more favored (50%) compared to beginners who prefer MySQL (54%). Is MySQL’s position being completely replaced by PostgreSQL?

In contrast, in China, MySQL’s market share is significantly higher than PostgreSQL, with many internet companies still being loyal users of MySQL. So, what are the reasons for this situation?

Both MySQL and PostgreSQL have their advantages. After a comprehensive comparison, who can come out on top? How should enterprises and individuals choose between MySQL and PostgreSQL?

In this issue, OSCHINA’s [Open Source Talk] has specially invited 5 representative experts from the industry to discuss live, who is the world’s number one, MySQL or PostgreSQL?

When will TiDB be able to enter the discussion of being the world’s number one?

| username: tidb菜鸟一只 | Original post link

Many domestic databases are based on PG. MySQL seems fine when the data volume is small, but when it grows, you have to use database and table partitioning, which is far inferior to PG clusters. TiDB has taken a unique path of its own.

We still have a significant gap compared to these leading databases.

In my opinion, TiDB is the best, and PostgreSQL can only come second.

I heard that the debate eventually turned into personal attacks and criticizing each other’s resumes.
