MySQL Review

During the billing process, if one server fails then we switch to the other transparently.

What is most valuable?

The multiple engine replication is the most valuable feature. This neuralgic process for billing needs high availability and that is where we need this robust, but simple solution. If one server fails, we switch to the other transparently.

How has it helped my organization?

It facilitated fast processing of the millions of records for billing of the the call detail records in the Telecom company. The company needed to recover calls, in addition to immediately detecting frauds in the telephone calls so as to block the line and generate large losses. With the help of stored procedures, functions and triggers, we created an engine to recover most of the calls with a single transaction. Thanks to MySQL.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There were no stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There were no scalability issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

I would rate the technical support as a five out of 10.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We were using PostgreSQL. The reason why we switched to this solution was that of the easy administration.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was easy.
