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.​

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 support is not that great. They're not really supporting directly anymore and relying on experts to figure out technical issues.

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.

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 MySQL Cloud Service delivers a secure, cost-effective and enterprise-grade MySQL database service. Built on MySQL Enterprise Edition and powered by the Oracle Cloud, it provides a simple, automated, integrated and enterprise ready MySQL cloud service, enabling organizations to increase business agility and reduce costs.
