Needs advice

I work for a firm that gave me the task to select a software stack that suits our needs, I already have some idea of what it is going to be but I am the only technical person in the firm so I need advice. I just got out of school so it's kinda overwhelming.

What we need - One MPA (so SSR and SEO) - Two SPA on the same domain as the MPA - A backend that works with MSSQL and the frontend

Because it is a pretty big enterprise project and my devs are familiar with Angular I want to use Angular with PrimeNg on top. For the backend, I think Django will be my choice because it works with our database and the built-in functionalities seem very nice.

I would also like to use Vite for faster development time but I am not sure if it will suit my needs.

The main question is can I use Angular for the MPA so SSR and Angular for the SPA's on the same domain, it opens a new tab when a link is clicked to the SPA. I need to hydrate some parts of the pages of the MPA too I was thinking to use Analogjs but vite ssr also seems similar.

Please help I'm confused.

Does anyone have any advice or guidance on how to create a Lucee instance in the Amazon Web Service cloud? I'm a many years CF dev but I have zero experience working with cloud services and I'm trying to roll my own on this one. I have a traditional ACF hosting arrangement I desperately need to migrate from (their support has recently evaporated and it's causing my application performance nightmares) and my app will need to be in the cloud for scalability considerations so I'm figuring now is the best time to make the move. My current setup is ACF with a MSSQL backend and I think I'd like to migrate that to a Lucee/MySQL or Amazon Aurora setup.

Any pointers would be most welcome. Thanks in advance!

Needs advice

I'm working on a project where I need to both send real-time updates for specific data sets, along with providing notifications to the users after long-running processes have been completed (SSE).

The project is using .NET Framework, AngularJS, & MSSQL. I understand that SignalR is nice as a polyfill for .NET and you can scale with a backplane, but I was wondering if there was a more efficient/effective technology for this?

I am considering which chat solution to choose between CometChat and SendBird, for our new app. The condition is, the app is going to run in a private network and has to connect with MSSQL. Any advice on other things I have to consider before choosing one, or is there another chat service you would recommend? Thank you!

MSSQL Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to MSSQL?
The MySQL software delivers a very fast, multi-threaded, multi-user, and robust SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. MySQL Server is intended for mission-critical, heavy-load production systems as well as for embedding into mass-deployed software.
PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system that supports an extended subset of the SQL standard, including transactions, foreign keys, subqueries, triggers, user-defined types and functions.
Oracle Database is an RDBMS. An RDBMS that implements object-oriented features such as user-defined types, inheritance, and polymorphism is called an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS). Oracle Database has extended the relational model to an object-relational model, making it possible to store complex business models in a relational database.
DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows is optimized to deliver industry-leading performance across multiple workloads, while lowering administration, storage, development, and server costs.
MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
