Suggested databases for logging client app data

When it comes to client-side logging events at scale, what databases come to mind? I was reading through some articles and saw that most big tech went the MySQL route and experimented with others such as Cassandra, but ended up staying on MySQL. Is MySQL still considered the optimal choice?

The CAP theorem can help you make a choice.
I think, you can look at tools used for Event Sourcing, like RavenDb ... or time series databases.

P.S : Does they explain why they come back to MySql?
