-MySQL is for Scala and reliability

-PostgreSQL is for data modeling

-Mongodb is to manage a large unstructured database.

-Cassandra is for real time data processing.

There are many but ideally that depends on specific needs.

A properly configured database system such as MongoDB is resistant to failures, scalable, and allows you to hierarchize and store of large amounts of data, so it fulfils the needs of any e-commerce projects.

I'm much less inclined to mention products here, and more about having proper database management and DBA expertise available to support the database. You can use a technology that seems to match your workload best while still lacking in proper support, hardening, modelling and the like, resulting in a failed product and operational stability overall.

Furthermore, if you seek out an eCommerce software product, they will mention what databases they support - or even provide as part of the package, although that will get your DBAs to sigh and roll their eyes a bit, as such delivered database engines are often not sufficiently tailorable to the setup and support structure that your DBA team has in place.

As you can see, NoSQL databases meet e-commerce data availability and storage criteria. MongoDB is the most popular database.
