First, I’m shocked by the 300 types, it truly exemplifies the competitive spirit.
Then, closely following the list of trusted innovations, with a wide range of exploration.
Finally, deeply studying our company’s database.

I feel that:

You can choose no more than two tech stacks to deeply understand!

Use them extensively!

How to choose from 300 options, which direction do you all prefer?

Let’s choose TiDB first~~

There are many migration cases and fewer foreseeable pitfalls. If you can show everyone the migration cases and mature solutions, more people will learn from them. Be bold and share them.

Apart from a few good ones at the top, most domestic databases actually cause more anxiety for DBAs.

First of all, I support TOP N domestic databases. The database meets the requirements of daily business while also considering the direction of future technological development, such as distributed, cloud-native, HATP, and other future technology directions for databases.

Start with TiDB as a base, then choose another one. :grin:

Although it’s a process of sifting through the sands, DBAs are definitely under a lot of pressure.

"Gauge your appetite by the dishes available; learn the ones with a larger user base first. The ones that survive are the ‘good databases.’

TiDB is definitely worth learning :smirk:"

Refer to market choices to narrow down the selection range;
Then carefully select based on the characteristics of the business itself.

The successful ones are all driven by open-source communities, and the competition is indeed intense in China. :top: I have tested several of them and ultimately chose TiDB.

Believe in domestic products, believe in distributed systems.

  1. Use True distributed databases represented by TiDB to replace all TP and lightweight AP services. (Reliability, ease of maintenance, multi-tenant management, and community maturity are all indispensable)

  2. Use other databases to replace all AP queries and BI services.

High market share and comprehensive documentation.

It must be able to scale infinitely, have strong performance, and be cost-effective.

The company has only approved three or four types that can be used.

Mastering the database used by the company and one other mainstream domestic database is sufficient. Since the company uses TiDB, I plan to only master TiDB for now.
