Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The solution is hands-off; you set it up insert your data and it self tunes queries."

More Exasol Pros »

"A good traditional database that supports JSON.""The connectivity with PHP is quite good.""For sure, the solution is very stable.""I am totally satisfied with MySQL.""This is a lightweight product that is not demanding on the resources, which is what I think gives it the edge.""MySQL is open-source. There are a lot of open-source communities trying to come up with their own patches, and to come up with their own features, which help MySQL develop faster than traditional databases like Oracle, which is closed source.""It is easy to use.""The deployment process is pretty fast."

Cons
"Lacks a cloud-based platform."

More Exasol Cons »

"On the database side, it should be really lightweight, and the data structure should be like MongoDB.""There should be more tools to manage the on-premises version and more automation features.""Could use some additional JSON query support in the solution.""MySQL tutorials and guides could be improved. Often they are too complex for someone with no database experience to understand.""Rather than going in-depth about the technical features, which a technical person can directly tell, I would say that MySQL should be able to adapt to the next framework. The 5G framework means an unstructured framework. So if MySQL becomes smoother and more adaptable, it'll be easier.""The solution could improve by having better performance and security.""From a user perspective, the initial setup could be simplified a bit.""Sometimes, not because the version is not the latest version, there are some issues with it. Sometimes there's an issue with the server which creates issues with it."

"The solution does not come with a licensing fee.""There is no cost involved, no licensing fees.""There is a license needed for this solution.""It's an open-source database management system that can be used free of charge.""I am using the Community Edition, which is available free of charge.""It's cheaper than other solutions.""I use the open-source free community version.""We do have a couple of clients who choose to use the paid, enterprise version of the solution and who take full advantage of it."

Until its recent acquisition by Oracle, MySQL was possibly the most renowned open source database enterprise package that could be accessed completely for free. With the merger, the server increased both its features and its price tag, but there is still a free version available to the general community to contribute ideas and suggestions.

MySQL is a fast and relatively inexpensive database management system. It can easily integrate with a wide variety of programming languages, and it is considered to be a very reliable option. One of the most prominent features that customers seem to enjoy is the easy scalability of this system.
