    Primarily MySQL but they use several. Gotta use the best tool for the job. There's a discussion on stackoverflow about it but I can't post the link.

    Facebook primarily uses MySQL for structured data storage. In fact, their team has submitted numerous high-performance enhancements to the MySQL core and Innodb plug-in. For a few means of document storage and write-heavy applications (such as inbox search), Cassandra is used. In fact, it isn't anywhere close to being the primary database platform; it used for very specific scenarios where the NoSQL paradigm fits best.

    It's irrelevant what FaceBook uses.

    However, if you are looking for a database solution odds are mySQL is WAY MORE than enough for you or ANY company/website.
