A lot of the software components have been trialed and tested for often more than 10 years.
The main advantage is the very large user base. This enables users to fix about any issue by answering any question.

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.

If it had something similar to Microsoft’s DTS engine then it would be the best database system out there.

It does not stand out regarding scalability. When the company size increases, the user base having actual experience with (very) large MySQL solutions is reduced.
