We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It gives us a solid, less expensive alternative to deploying with Oracle."
"The low cost and functionality allows us to save money on smaller database projects."
"The scalability of the database is absolutely guaranteed by the new features."
"The stability of the solution is very good. I wouldn't have used it for the past seven years if I was not satisfied."
"The solution overall is very, very good. It's got good integration with other databases and adds new features often."
"The initial setup was straightforward."
"The most valuable feature is the data aggregation function."
"The system is aging and not keeping up with the performance of new, enhanced database models."
"The security is not very robust and the product would be much more useful with more security options."
"The support is not that great. They're not really supporting directly anymore and relying on experts to figure out technical issues."
"Sometimes MySQL does upgrades on the server. When we are still using the old server and when they integrate the upgrade, they don't carry along some of the old syntaxes. The versions don't sync."
"The solution should offer memory management."
"Integrating business intelligence or NLP solutions would help us save time and would prevent us from having to take a deep dive. Data problems seem to multiply on the system when you interact with it. Automation would save a lot of man-hours."
"The technical support is in need of improvement."
"Pricing is significantly lower than competing products."
"The product is either free with community support or very inexpensive with a small yearly fee for paid support."
