Polyglot Persistence for the MongoDB, PostgreSQL & MySQL DBA

The introduction of DevOps in organisations has changed the development process, and perhaps introduced some challenges. Developers, in addition to their own preferred programming languages, also have their own preference for backend storage.The former is often referred to as polyglot languages and the latter as polyglot persistence.

Having multiple storage backends means your organization will become more agile on the development side and allows choice to the developers but it also imposes additional knowledge on the operations side. Extending your infrastructure from only MySQL, to deploying other storage backends like MongoDB and PostgreSQL, implies you have to also monitor, manage and scale them. As every storage backend excels at different use cases, this also means you have to reinvent the wheel for every one of them.
