Which database is suitable for Jira Data center (MySQL or Postgres)

Hi All,

Is there any recommendation for which database we should use for the Jira data center (MySQL or Postgres)?

Advantages or Disadvantages is any?

Currently we are using MySQL 5.7 which is installed in-house and we are planing to migrate the Jira to AWS infra and want to use the RDS Aurora.

Any suggestions if anyone using the Aurora DB for there Jira.
