A great open-source product that offers great scalability and compatibility

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

We are using MySQL 5.6, 5.7, and MySQL 8.0. In terms of advice, I'd say when implementing MySQL, if a company has been using any previous relational database, like Oracle, Microsoft SQL or DB2, the easiest way to migrate from any database is from Oracle to MySQL. There'll be some challenges from Microsoft SQL, as well as from DB2 to MySQL. Any existing application which is working with the Oracle database as a backend database, DB2 database as a backend database, or Microsoft as the backend database, they will still work fine with MySQL. MySQL is a product supported by a lot of applications…

Database solution with good performance

What is our primary use case?

When I worked for Groupon in Korea, the main production database was MariaDB. We used it for eCommerce. It was a database where we stored data.

Pros and Cons

  • "MariaDB can solve things better than MySQL. Maria DB has better performance than MySQL."
  • "I would like to see more compatibility going forward. This would help if there is a need to change databases."

What other advice do I have?

MariaBD is good. It is almost perfect. I would recommend it. I would rate this product as a nine (out of 10).
