Currently, it doesn’t seem to work well. At least in terms of performance, TiFlash is still far from the top :upside_down_face:

Big data has become much more widespread. TiDB, as one of the top distributed databases in China, can replace other databases to take the leading position. It’s like asking if China will replace the Earth, the Milky Way, or the Universe? They are not on the same level.

Specifically, these four characteristics do not have defined ranges, so big data is just a concept without detailed boundaries.
I remember there was a column written a long time ago, not sure if it falls under the category of big data, you can take a look roughly

TiDB can handle both TP and AP, it’s really powerful.

It should not be able to replace it, as it is just one aspect of the database. The big data ecosystem is very large.

There are many aspects to the big data ecosystem… not just databases.
