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.

Teradata Vantage Advanced SQL Engine (Teradata Database)

Teradata is especially useful when you are dealing with a large amount of data which needs to be analyzed and then you need to draw meaningful results and patterns out of that for future reference. Its parallel processing architecture is super fast and accurate giving you the results in the best possible time. Its primary role is the enterprise Dataware housing model.

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.

Teradata Vantage Advanced SQL Engine (Teradata Database)

  • Scalability, where it's able to house magnitudes more data compared to a standard SQL database while still retaining good performance.
  • Performance, able to quickly retrieve millions of rows with ease.
  • Adaptability, able to connect to the likes of Tableau desktop to enable quick analysis.

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

  • Unlike most of the other DB, the SQL scripting is difficult here, we need to learn for using any advance scripting
  • More room for automation of deployments is needed.

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.

It has helped our project to save time, effort and give accurate results in the quickest possible time. The diagnostics feature is also outstanding giving us a detailed report of the error which occurred, when it occurred and the likely cause and resolution of the same as well. The support of SQL is inherited which makes it easy to work on it because you don't need to learn any new language for this.

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.

We have meetings at the beginning with the technical team to explain our requirements to them and they were really putting in a lot of effort to come up with a solution which will address all our needs. They implemented the software and also trained a few of our resources on the same too. We can get in touch with them now as well whenever we run into a roadblock but it's very less now.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Microsoft is definitely the easiest solution for beginners. We can start our journey as fast as with MS Windows. We should only take care with the installation process to avoid mistakes, that will be hard to correct later. Oracle is a huge solution with many additional tools and middle-ware platform. Both MS and Oracle have much bigger internet support resources and communities; that is a huge advantage.

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.

  • Negative impact is again the slowness that would be felt by developers and users.
  • Negative impact is that there is a learning curve if they have been using any other type of SQL.
  • Positive impact is that you can collaborate with other developers by using projects.
