We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The scalability of the database is absolutely guaranteed by the new features."
"The stability of the solution is very good. I wouldn't have used it for the past seven years if I was not satisfied."
"The solution overall is very, very good. It's got good integration with other databases and adds new features often."
"The initial setup was straightforward."
"The most valuable feature is the data aggregation function."
"We've found the solution very reliable overall. It's very fast."
"The auto-backup replication is a perfect feature. That is the feature I liked the most."
"The support is not that great. They're not really supporting directly anymore and relying on experts to figure out technical issues."
"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 solution should offer memory management."
"Integrating business intelligence or NLP solutions would help us save time and would prevent us from having to take a deep dive. Data problems seem to multiply on the system when you interact with it. Automation would save a lot of man-hours."
"The technical support is in need of improvement."
"The interface is not easy in comparison to the SQL Server. It could be more user-friendly."
"A problem we are experiencing now is when doing a backup in SQL 2012 and 14."
"SQL Anywhere cost us about $400."
