There's nothing inherent in having a rigid schema or using SQL as a query
language that prevents scaling. But MySQL, for instance, is twenty years
old, and PostgreSQL is nearly as old. Oracle, in contrast, is nearly
forty. A system designed originally to scale to PDP-11s requires
extensive effort and redesign to scale to scale as well as modern
Databases implemented more recently are generally built to scale out.
They have automatic sharding built into them, client and server. They
were developed (and their scaling systems designed) when we already had
algorithms like RAFT and a lot of experience with distributed systems.
