Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The performance is most important to me, and it helps our ability to make business decisions quickly."
"This is a lightweight product that is not demanding on the resources, which is what I think gives it the edge."
"MySQL gives us all of the critical features that we need in a database, but without the costs."
"This product is a good teaching tool for students who want to learn about networked databases."
"This specific version of this MySQL has been battle tested for a long time. Any issues are known issues and we pretty much don't have any problems when they're in production. So it's very stable."
"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."
"Apart from the features that are in the enterprise part, we find the database to be valuable. The connectors and the backup features are valuable as well. We use the basic database. We don't really use the extra features. Our clients like the security features in the database."
"The initial setup was pretty straightforward. I would have worked with our IT team in terms of the initial setup."
"The solution is free to use, which is its most valuable aspect."
"The scalability is not as expected. The capacity in the black box is not enough."
"The product is a little bit complex and it is difficult to find sufficient documentation."
"I would like to have features that allow us to jump between the cloud and our on-premises system."
"The documentation is pretty weak and should be improved."
"In terms of what I'd like to see in the next release, one thing that's always missing is dash boarding. There's no real BI tool for MySQL, like there is in Yellowfin and all the different tools that you get. They all have MySQL connectors, but there's no specific BI tool for MySQL. These open source projects have sprung up, but they're more general purpose."
"They should come up with a better solution than the NDB cluster for better scaling. If they could come up with a better solution for write scaling, apart from the NDB cluster, which is supported by all open source communities, that would be great. Although the NDB cluster, I believe, is an open-source tool, it's not widely supported as a solution."
"Oracle should start putting in some of the enterprise features in the standard feature. There are some key features that should be part of the standard."
"I find the Microsoft solution a bit better. But mostly in terms of the UI layout, I would say. I just find it a little bit more efficient."
"From a user perspective, the initial setup could be simplified a bit."

Question: What do you like most about MySQL?
Top Answer: The initial setup was pretty straightforward. I would have worked with our IT team in terms of the initial setup.
Top Answer: So we jumped from version 5.6 to 5.7. That's not the latest version. The latest version is 5.8. We didn't move to eight for the simple reason that there's lots of code-based on 5.7 and there's no… more »

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.
