We currently have a MySQL installation that, because "it just works" has not been given the attention that it should have been. As such it is now running an unsupported version.
As moving to a supported MySQL version is going to take some resource (installations, imports, testing, etc.), we're taking the opportunity to look at our options.
We had been thinking about MariaDB, which ticks most of our boxes, however we also want to consider the possibility that we may move our system to the cloud at some point in the future. We have no firm plans in this case.
Are there any candidates from PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, etc that stand out from the others
- Will support import from existing MySQL
- Ideally Open Source / Low Cost
- Supported by Cloud platforms (Heroku, AWS, Azure, etc)
