OverviewAs Wayfair technology teams begin their replatforming journeys, more engineers will make decisions for their single purpose database. Choosing the right database technology is one of the most important decisions you can make when building a new microservice. If you realize down the line that you have made the wrong choice, migrating to another database can be a costly and risky procedure. We committed to Google as our cloud platform provider, and they offer multiple robust database options.
