How to Choose an Open-Source Database
It might be time for a new database. Growing data volumes, real-time analytics, and digital initiatives are driving the need for more modern data architectures and platforms. As a result, many businesses are moving away from proprietary database software running on centralized servers in their own data centers and shifting to a newer generation of cloud databases that scale automatically and are much easier to deploy and manage. These new databases are often based on open-source software, and in fact, as of January 2021, open-source databases surpassed commercial databases in popularity.1 So how should you choose your new open-source database? It pays to ask some critical questions such as: what are my data characteristics? how easy — or hard — will data migration be? what capabilities do I need? which database would fit well with my existing IT infrastructure?
