What do you like most about MySQL?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
The solution is great for small applications in particular.
One of the best features is this solution is easy to use.
The most valuable feature is the ease of use.
A good traditional database that supports JSON.
The connectivity with PHP is quite good.
My main reason for using MySQL for this small customer database company and for some kinds of scientific projects was that I had to do the installation myself. I didn't have a database administration team behind me. Therefore, I was looking for something very easy to handle. MySQL is easy to install, connect, and do all such things.
The solution has been very easy to scale so far.
It's a good tool, a good database platform.
It is easy to use. It is simple to implement, which makes it suitable for our projects because we have deadlines. MySQL is also open-source, which is another plus point.
It is pretty simple to use and I don't have anything really bad to say about it.
It has a community version. When I have to create a new database, I have no problems with licenses.
What I really like about MySQL is the opportunity to search for information and organize it any way I like.
We use it as a data store and from that perspective, we get everything we need.
It is very easy to install and has all basic database features.
It was easy to install.
Like other databases, it has a rich set of functions, such as stored procedures and its own procedural language, which is akin to Oracle SQL. It also has trigger and cursor commands you would expect with a good database language.
The replication feature is the most valuable. We are replicating our servers.
What I've been most pleased with is the cost point, performance, and ease of use.
The one interesting thing about this product is that it is open source. It comes from an open source product. MySQL has been positioned as open source, but it also provides support.
I like the simplistic view of MySQL to build custom queries and things like that as compared to SQL Server, which seems more cluttered.
SQL Server has a query analyzer. MySQL pretty much does the same, and performance-wise, it has less overhead for connecting to our ERP system. It seems more responsive and cleaner. With MySQL, you get what you need without any overbloating, for which Microsoft is known. That's why they have so many constant security patches for everything because there is so much stuff, which degrades performance.
The most valuable features are that it's free and the documentation is good.
I like MySQL because of its community.
MySQL gives us all of the critical features that we need in a database, but without the costs.
This is a lightweight product that is not demanding on the resources, which is what I think gives it the edge.
This product is a good teaching tool for students who want to learn about networked databases.
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.
The initial setup was pretty straightforward. I would have worked with our IT team in terms of the initial setup.
Apart from the features that are in the enterprise part, we find the database to be valuable. The connectors and the backup features are valuable as well. We use the basic database. We don't really use the extra features. Our clients like the security features in the database.
This specific version of this MySQL has been battle tested for a long time. Any issues are known issues and we pretty much don't have any problems when they're in production. So it's very stable.
The solution is free to use, which is its most valuable aspect.
The solution is very simple. It's easy to use. That's the most important feature.
It creates a unified view of the entire architecture and performance factor, helping to manage the network more easily.
I use MySQL for employee service in an OLTP database.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
