Likelihood to Recommend

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.

SAP HANA Cloud

One of the advantages of SAP HANA Cloud is that it can easily be used to extend your current on-premise HANA system. We haven't tested it yet in a large scale project for instance as the database for an S/4 HANA implementation. This requires further investigation at this time.

Pros

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.

SAP HANA Cloud

  • It's the way to go for the foreseeable future if SAP HANA is your platform of choice
  • We like the features currently available, but are anxiously awaiting for more on-prem features to make it over to the offering
  • Multi-Cloud deployment options is a huge benefit
Dick Groenhof | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

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

SAP HANA Cloud

  • Remote source connections through SDA to other databases like SQL Server and Oracle are no longer possible. The only way to go would be through SDI, which isn't as optimized and might require additional license costs.
  • If you currently use features like dynamic tiering or R server integration, you need to really look if this is the offering for you at this point in time.
  • The flexibility of downsizing, which is a big advantage of working in the cloud, is at this moment not available (yet).

Usability

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.

Usability has been solid sofar, as well as the ease of setting up the SAP HANA Cloud instance. If you are a current user of HANA on-prem, you should feel straight at home.

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.

As we haven't used the support for SAP HANA Cloud yet, we can't really comment on this. The documentation however has helped us a lot.

Alternatives Considered

MySQL

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.
Joseph R. Sweeney | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP HANA Cloud

We have evaluated other offerings like SAP HEC and HANA as a service in the SAP Cloud Platform and we see that SAP HANA Cloud is the main focus of SAP's vision for the future. This is the main argument why we're leaning towards using this offering. Especially the quarterly releases of updates and new features is a positive criterium for us.

Return on Investment

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.

SAP HANA Cloud

  • As this is a primary evaluation of the SAP HANA Cloud, I can't make any comments on the ROI of using this offering
