    Which database system?

    Hi there,

    First a bit of background:
    I am building a system that needs to support approximately 5,000 users logging in, logging out, and being tracked through their every movement through the site each hour. Reliability is a HUGE concern of mine, but obviously so is speed, because I need it to cope with the considerable number of users.

    My Question:
    Which free / open source database system should I use? (commercial ones will not be considered...) The current ones I know of and am considering:
    - MySQL
    - PostgreSQL
    - Sybase
    - GNU SQL
    - Any others that would be good? ...

    A similar thread involving the language to be used is available here:

    Thanks for your help,

    Dan Cook
