Funny thing is even if we had built a web-scale, sharded MySQL, the tech companies would never have paid for it. I think i remember Google had paid for 1 week of consulting, while running 10s of 1000s of instances.

To be clear, Google paid MySQL around $1m / year for licenses. The value they received was likely higher than that, but as everyone knows but few understand, there's no great incentive for big tech companies to pay for open source software.
