MySQL Review

Open-source, easy to use, and simple to implement

What is our primary use case?

I'm currently using MySQL for the contact center database, and it is in the cloud. I have also used it in other projects for database and CRM, and it was on-premises. I have used it in 20 projects.

What is most valuable?

It is easy to use. It is simple to implement, which makes it suitable for our projects because we have deadlines. MySQL is also open-source, which is another plus point.

What needs improvement?

Its performance should be better. When we use big data, it is slow in performance. We should be able to use mirroring for improved performance.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using MySQL for nine years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is very flexible. It could be because I'm familiar with MySQL.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have never contacted the technical support of MySQL. If I have a problem, I find the solution from Stack Overflow.

How was the initial setup?

Its initial setup is easy. I only need a maximum of one hour for the installation of MySQL.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is open-source.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate MySQL a nine out of ten.
