  • Ask HN: It's 2023, how do you choose between MySQL and Postgres?
    7 projects | | 11 May 2023
    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] & davidfetter [David Fetter] 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

    Some of the PG based 3rd party DBs:

    Enterprise DB - general purpose PG with some variants

    Greenplum - Data warehousing

    Crunchydata - high security Postgres for regulated environments

    Citus - 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

  • Show HN: Postgres WASM
    16 projects | | 3 Oct 2022
    I was wondering if anyone had thought about using this to experiment with the planner.

    The engineering and support teams at Greenplum, a fork of Postgres, have a tool (minirepro[0]) which, given a sql query, can grab a minimal set of DDLs and the associated statistics for the tables involved in the query that can then be loaded into a "local" GPDB instance. Having the DDL and the statistics meant the team was able to debug issues in the optimizer (example [1]), without having access to a full set of data. This approach, if my understanding is correct, could be enabled in the browser with this Postgres WASM capability.

  • What’s the Database Plus concept and what challenges can it solve?
    5 projects | | 10 May 2022
    Today, it is normal for enterprises to leverage diversified databases. In my market of expertise, China, in the Internet industry, MySQL together with data sharding middleware is the go to architecture, with GreenPlum, HBase, Elasticsearch, Clickhouse and other big data ecosystems being auxiliary computing engine for analytical data. At the same time, some legacy systems (such as SQLServer legacy from .NET transformation, or Oracle legacy from outsourcing) can still be found in use. In the financial industry, Oracle or DB2 is still heavily used as the core transaction system. New business is migrating to MySQL or PostgreSQL. In addition to transactional databases, analytical databases are increasingly diversified as well.
