> PostgreSQL's scalability story is still a mess

This is absolutely true. I don't get the irrational downvotes when it comes to postgres.

It's a great database but it is sorely behind with scalability features and is just now finally getting single-node parallelism and logical replication. It's still hampered by the requirement on 3rd party tools to get connection scaling, decent backups, HA and distributed clustering. The future looks interesting but the other databases aren't sitting around idly either.
