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

Pros
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.I use MySQL for employee service in an OLTP database.Support for enterprise-grade features like clustering, master-slave replication, even Sharding (to some extent) which is an advanced feature.​The most valuable feature of MySQL is the informative error outputs of command line interface.​​We use MySQL for enterprise data storage as well as part of the back-end of websites and web applications.​Setup is easy. MySQL of various flavours has community editions to easily test, deploy, and run.​A lot of the software components have been trialed and tested for often more than 10 years.

The management and administration are the solution's most valuable features. It's very, very easy to have many databases under one major database that is controlling everything.The database becomes pluggable. Inside this container is called a pluggable database and each application contains this pluggable database inside Multitenant. We can then share resources like control files, memory, etc. This lets you stop and start each application without impacting the others. This resource sharing is the most valuable featureThe most valuable features are the speed and ease of use.

Cons
The only service which could be improved is its usability. The entire user experience needs to be revamped to meet the 2018 design standards.When working with a cluster wide, I have to use the MySQL cluster version.I feel that some tools which make it easier to create queries or make it easier for other functions would be really interesting to see.Some problems with big table operations, and a struggle to keep the servers responding in peak situations.It would be helpful if there were a graphical user interface to administer, configure, and tune it.If it had something similar to Microsoft’s DTS engine then it would be the best database system out there.​MySQL needs improvements on its diagnostic features.​​MySQL is not easily scalable on cost effective consumer grade hardware.​

In general, the pricing is expensive for this solution. It's one of the most expensive products.That said, Oracle in general doesn't invest in their UI for any of their applications. If we're talking about the dashboard or other user experience, there is room for improvement. I'm talking about on premises. The cloud version has started to improve.The user interface for this solution can be made better.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Can range from free to quite expensive, depending on the environments and requirements, so better to really set goals ahead of setting it up.MySQL Enterprise Support is not cheap, though might still be cheaper than Oracle or SQL Server. They may not have local support depending on where you’re based, but there are many smaller agencies out there that will readily provide support. You’ll need to spend some time looking around.​Enterprise editions and support are definitely needed for the heavy users who need direct support. ​When you know the setup will continue to grow, make sure you have the paid support.

For me, I will go with it if I have the budget. Some features are nicer than before, but at the end of the day, you always have a limited budget. I prefer to upgrade and get a specific hardware when possible. At the end, you will have to make a compromise. You will not get everything you would have liked to have.This solution is a little bit pricey.

Overview

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.

Oracle Multitenant - an Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition option – introduces a new architecture that enables customers to easily consolidate multiple databases, without changing their applications. This new architecture delivers all the benefits of managing many databases as one, yet retains the isolation and resource prioritization of separate databases. In addition, Oracle Multitenant enables rapid provisioning and upgrades, and fully complements other options including Oracle Real Application Clusters and Active Data Guard. p>
