One of the Important news for Database Community.
The UBER taxi number one company switched from PostgreSQL to MySQL.

There are a few major reasons behind for this migration.
As per the official document of UBER, they were facing a few notable issues with the PostgreSQL.

  • Inefficient architecture for writes
  • Inefficient data replication
  • Issues with table corruption
  • Poor replica MVCC support
  • Difficulty upgrading to newer releases

Here, I am sharing the official link on UBER database migration. I completely read this article and agree with it on a few of the topics.
