Opinions and Suggestions for PostgreSQL Extension under Development

What about getting in touch with commercial organisations that have products/services based on PostgreSQL? For example Timescale, EDB, and Citus Data, or really any hosting provider that offers a managed PostgreSQL service.
Ask HN: It's 2023, how do you choose between MySQL and Postgres?

Friends don't let their friends choose Mysql :)
A super long time ago (decades) when I was using Oracle regularly I had to make a decision on which way to go. Although Mysql then had the mindshare I thought that Postgres was more similar to Oracle, more standards compliant, and more of a real enterprise type of DB. The rumor was also that Postgres was heavier than MySQL. Too many horror stories of lost data (MyIsam), bad transactions (MyIsam lacks transaction integrity), and the number of Mysql gotchas being a really long list influenced me.
In time I actually found out that I had underestimated one of the most important attributes of Postgres that was a huge strength over Mysql: the power of community. Because Postgres has a really superb community that can be found on Libera Chat and elsewhere, and they are very willing to help out, I think Postgres has a huge advantage over Mysql. RhodiumToad [Andrew Gierth] https://github.com/RhodiumToad & davidfetter [David Fetter] https://www.linkedin.com/in/davidfetter are incredibly helpful folks.
I don't know that Postgres' licensing made a huge difference or not but my perception is that there are a ton of 3rd party products based on Postgres but customized to specific DB needs because of the more liberalness of the PG license which is MIT/BSD derived https://www.postgresql.org/about/licence/
Some of the PG based 3rd party DBs:
Enterprise DB https://www.enterprisedb.com/ - general purpose PG with some variants
Greenplum https://greenplum.org/ - Data warehousing
Crunchydata https://www.crunchydata.com/products/hardened-postgres - high security Postgres for regulated environments
Citus https://www.citusdata.com - Distributed DB & Columnar
Why Choose PG today?
If you want better ACID: Postgres
If you want more compliant SQL: Postgres
If you want more customizability to a variety of use-cases: Postgres using a variant
If you want the flexibility of using NOSQL at times: Postgres
If you want more product knowledge reusability for other backend products: Postgres
Can someone share experience configuring Highly Available PgSQL?

Citus - Citus is very much alive and is a thriving open-source and commercial product, but is not HA on its own. It is essentially distributed/sharded Postgres.
Any self hostable postgres clustering, replication and fail over system?

I would like to know your advice, I am creating an inventory control software, and I would like to use the PostgreSQL database instead of SQL Server, Could you give me your opinions of the advantages and disadvantages of using one or the other, Thank you.

As always: it depends. For some workloads something like Citus  might allow you stay within the PostgreSQL ecosystem even when you are trying to do OLAP.
Citus: Make enterprise features open source

Wait, isn't the license  on this repo AGPL? While I would like to voice a general protest against the AGPL FUD, it's also somewhat strange to do it in the same breath as "Much respect" for Citus here.
