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

Pros
The performance is most important to me, and it helps our ability to make business decisions quickly.We are able to execute very complex queries. Over 90 percent of our query executions are one second or less. We do millions of queries everyday.

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 solution is very simple. It's easy to use. That's the most important feature.It creates a unified view of the entire architecture and performance factor, helping to manage the network more easily.It has a remote access feature to manage the database from a remote location. This enables in-work collaboration.

Cons
The scalability is not as expected. The capacity in the black box is not enough.Our main problem with it is concurrency. When there are too many users running Netezza at the same time, this is when we have the most complaints.We are not able to scale. The only way to scale is to get another appliance, but we have a customers who would need us to hydrate the data between the two appliances, and Netezza does not do that.

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.The replication needs improvement. It's becoming a native cloud product like Oracle DB or Cockroach DB.The only service which could be improved is its usability. The entire user experience needs to be revamped to meet the 2018 design standards.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing is very expensive. It has a lot CPUs with a lot of components in it. It also has built-in redundancy for resiliency reasons.

Overview
IBM Netezza appliances are now part of IBM PureSystems - expert integrated systems with built in expertise, integration by design and a simplified user experience. Part of the PureData family, the Netezza appliance is now known as the PureData System for Analytics. It has the same key design tenets of simplicity, speed, scalability and analytics power that was fundamental to Netezza appliances.

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.
