Hi Database Gurus,
Not to start a war among fanatics, but I just wanted to get honest opinion/advise of smart folks like you about this. We are about to begin development for a data intensive web based application and are faced with the choice of database software. We (at least currently) are focusing on free software. Some basic research has indicated both Postgresql and Mysql as the best of lot.
Can people please advise as to pros/cons of each of these ? I am looking from the following angles:
a.. Performance (Scalability)
c.. Ease of use
d.. Extensibility ...
