DBeaver

Great tool for developers to use to dive into their databases. Not so great if you are a die-hard Windows user with expectations of a SQL Management studio replacement. This is the less suited tool for people looking to just view and edit data. If you need to generate any scripts or import and export data, this is the tool to use.

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.

Pros

DBeaver

  • Find the right driver automatically.
  • Export entity-relationship schemes.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

MySQL

  • MySQL is first off free to use, so that makes it a win right there.
  • MySQL is constantly updated and security holes are patched quickly and often.
  • MySQL is highly customizable and allows you access to all areas of the database to use it the way you want, plus there is lots of documentation online and other users sharing their customization experiences to help you along the way.

Cons

DBeaver

  • Sometimes it's clunky and slow.
  • One time it made changes to prod without me asking it to do anything.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

MySQL

  • Complex queries usually require many resources to obtain results. Other software does not present this situation.
  • MySQL has stopped its evolutionary process since its change of ownership, so the changes it presents have become irrelevant to the operation of the service.
  • Oracle has avoided releasing the code for the detection and correction of errors so the essence of open source has been disappearing

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.

At the moment, from our company we have not had to try the DBeaver support service, so we cannot answer this question. We understand that the paid version will offer a much better service.

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

DBeaver

MySQL workbench from MySQL only supports MySQL databases and it only provides basic functionality. On top of that, the user experience could be quite confusing for first-time users. SSMS from SQL server doesn't support inline editing nicely. The view for inline editing and view data is different, making it uncomfortable to use. All in all, DBeaver is the best tool when you manage a lot of databases with different types.

We actually use Sisense alongside MySQL as they integrate very well with one another. One of MySQL's flaws is its slow speeds on larger datasets which is why we began using Sisense. This way, we can organize several feeds into one source without having to do repetitious work on different sources.

Return on Investment

DBeaver

  • Saved our development team hours of work handcrafting database deployment scripts by generating DDL scripts for us.
Aaron Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

MySQL

  • MySQL has been a vital cost reducing technology for smaller databases that do not require commercial support.
  • We have successfully sold the enterprise edition to customers who wanted to beef up the capabilities of MySQL compared to the community edition without rewriting an application to use a fully commercial database such as DB2, Oracle or SQL Server
  • MySQL has been extremely cost effective where we have deployed it. When compared to Oracle or MySQL, the savings has been substantial.
