Percona Server for MySQL covers 100% of our requirements in terms of our OLTP traffic and provides the High Availability levels required through a typical primary and 2 replica's using semi-synchronous replication. We're able to scale our writes using sharding, but a true distributed database would be a great option on top of this. In terms of OLAP traffic, we leverage columns stores available, but Percona Server fairs well

We were looking for time series database that will be able to handle L2 market data and came across QuestDB. From the beginning we were impressed how well the QuestDB performs and that it actually significantly outperforms all other open source TSDB on market like
, etc. Apart from the excellent performance it is also super easy to use and deploy which makes the experience of using the database very pleasant - we were able to be up and running and storing data within few hours. Topic itself is the QuestDB team that is super responsive on their slack channel and always ready to help with any query. They are constantly improving the product and if there is some missing feature that is blocking you from usage they always try the best to implement such feature asap and release a new version - one of the best support I have ever seen so far in open source community.
