Cache

It's definitely great for medical industries that need the vast amounts of features/security/performance, however if you need something simple then this would be too much. There is a learning curve, and if you come from more common database technologies, then there will be a lot of differences to handle. Simple database needs would be better fulfilled elsewhere, but Cache is for when you need to take the next step, whether that be in the volume, complexity, or security of ETL.

MySQL

MySQL is well suited to be a backend database to store data. Since MySQL has been around for many years, lots of people know how to set it up and use it, making it easy to get support or bring on new developers on a project using MySQL. Previously, I've seen MySQL being used as a queuing system, which was not really what it was designed for, and lead to stability issues when scaled up.

Pros

Cache

  • It's an object oriented database with relational access, making the vast volume of data ETL fast and as efficient as we are able to make it.
  • Easy to install and doesn't take a lot of time to get a test environment running.
  • CSP is a fascinating web development technology that easily connects a user application to the Cache handled data.

Cons

Cache

  • The great functionality hides behind an old UI that can be cumbersome to navigate, making Cache configurations take more time.
  • The easy installs of Cache need specific setups to work well, and if yours is unique or if your servers are highly specialized on a networking level in terms of ports, VMs, or otherwise, then there may be some difficulties getting things to work.

MySQL

  • 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.

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

Cache

I've only worked with products that do one thing before, but there's so much that Cache offers versus piecing different services together manually. Not only does the product offer a more robust tool-set, but the support is wonderful and I've never encountered a better vendor in any industry in terms of how well they interact with their customers and care about helping you solve your problems. They want you to grow and to get better.

MySQL

MySQL is a most generic implementation of a database of a sort that is coherent with major designs of web engines and frameworks. As it works in cross-platform environments and easy to deploy it seems to be a competitive choice and prospective solution for integration into web environment for a purpose of hosting a website.
