1010data

The software is excellent for any application which is too large for Excel. The visual interface surpasses that of most SQL platforms. It is quite useful for data mining in an exploratory way but less useful in statistical and regression analysis.

MySQL

It is extremely well-suited for use cases across a broad range of applications such as e-commerce and business applications, and most small to larger organizations will find it well-suited for their data storage needs for a particular application. However, it is not designed for data warehousing and would not do well for analytics data for which a No-SQL option would serve better, and it is not ideal for geographical data management.

  • MySQL can take data from a lot of different sources and import it into a Relational table.
  • MySQL is fast and uses very few resources on the host system.
  • It is a robust RDBMS that has an almost unlimited number of applications.
  • In case you need support, MySQL is owned by Oracle so you can get support for your production systems.
  • MySQL has a huge user community behind it and a lot of questions and answers have been published about it.

Cons

  • The ten.do interface could use more detailed documentation
Marc Gilbert profile photo
  • MySQL simply doesn't scale as well as commercial databases. It seems to reach a performance plateau where you are then required to shard the data into different instances to get the performance you need.
  • The stored procedure and programming language is too limited compared to TSQL or PL/SQL.
  • Configuring the different storage engines is cumbersome to enable features like spatial queries. It would be helpful if all features could run out of the InnoDB storage engine.
  • It lacks some of the higher end features of commercial databases such as flashback recovery, updateable views, etc.

I give MySQL a 9/10 overall because I really like it but I feel like there are a lot of tech people who would hate it if I gave it a 10/10. I've never had any problems with it or reached any of its limitations but I know a few people who have so I can't give it a 10/10 based on those complaints.

The support staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. I only had to get part way through my explanations before they had a solution. They will walk you through a fix or actually connect in and fix the problem for you--or would if you can allow it. I've done it both ways with them. They are always forthcoming with 'how to do this if it happens again' information. I love working with MySQL support.

Alternatives Considered

While we have used SQL, 1010data is really the only industry standard product available for our use.
Marc Gilbert profile photo
MySQL tends to be easier to administer and launch than these other varieties of SQL, not to mention it is open source and therefore free--which was a necessity for our startup budget. While Postgres is also free, it tends to be slightly harder to administer than MySQL and outside support for Postgres integration isn't currently as strong.

Return on Investment

  • This has sped up the process of analysis.
  • We can now automate process which were performed manually.
  • Analysis can be performed more frequently.
Marc Gilbert profile photo
  • Moving to MySQL 5.6 has allowed us to see a near 35% increase in database throughput and I/O operations
  • By clustering our MySQL instance, we're able to increase the performance of the entire system substantially--it should scale to (potentially) a petabyte level as our business grows
  • The lack of great support for UDFs and window functions has meant our development time has increased slightly when needing to extract data from MySQL
