I am asking this question because I see millions of questions and answers on those questions & answers sites like quora, stackoverflow which are well-arranged and considered to use database for storing contents and users data. What is the database system which is commonly used for that job?

As likely as not They use MySql as their DBMS(database management system) for storing their user data, contents such as Questions and answers. Because I think (text) contents , as we know, doesn't require much space as photos or videos do. It is likely that those giant sites use more than one DBMS for managing and organizing their data, for instance: • Facebook uses (MariaDB, MySQL, HBase and Cassandra) • YouTube uses (Vitess, BigTable and MariaDB) • Twitter uses (MySQL only) • Wikipedia uses (MariaDB only) • Ebay uses (Oracle database only) • but Google uses (Bigtable and MariaDB) And now you clearly see that It depends on Company preferences and (data amount)! »
