I guess it depends on our workload.  PostgreSQL shouldn't be slow for this, and
it's really reliable.  MySQL/MariaDB's cache style is useful for high read/low
write websites, but I don't think ours would really stress either system. ;)

Btw, MongoDB (specifically) kind of worries me after reading stuff like this:


I'm not saying bad things about all NoSQL solutions btw, just ones that have
the kind of worrying failure stuff mentioned above. ;)

Hopefully MongoDB have got that data loss stuff worked out by now (unsure).
The Jepsen post was a fair while ago. ;)
