For smaller database backends, this product works well. Our backend printer management software is using MySQL as its backend and we have not had any issues since it went live 2 years ago. It's also free so no licensing worries.

Pros

Oracle

  • Security: is embedded at each level in MySQL. Authentication mechanisms are in place for configuring user access and even service account access to applications. MySQL is secure enough under the hood to store your sensitive information. Also, additional plugins are available that sit on top of MySQL for even tighter security.
  • Widely adopted: MySQL is used across the industry and is trusted the most. Therefore, if you face any problems, simply Google it and you shall land in plenty of forums. This is a great relief as when you are in a need of help, you can find it right in your browser.
  • Lightweight application: MySQL is not a heavy application. However, the data you store in the database can get heavy with time, but as in the configuration and MySql application files, those are not very heavy and can easily be installed on legacy systems as well.

Teradata

  • Teradata database is based on Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) architecture. Because of this architecture, Teradata is able to share the workload evenly across all the system. It splits the work equally to its processes and each process runs in parallel to achieve the result in quickest possible time.
  • The underlying work is done by Teradata nodes, Access Module Processors (AMPs) and the disks associated with AMPs. The beauty is that none of them share any resources which means they all work independently and achieve actual parallel processing with the fastest results. The each AMP shares the same amount of work so that no resource stays idle and the output can be quicker.
  • Another excellent feature of Teradata is the Connectivity portion. It can so easily connect to almost all the major systems like Mainframes, Oracle DB or IBM DB2. The import of loads is super fast and efficient.
  • It is also really helpful when you have to troubleshoot an error because it provides great diagnostic information and therefore saves you a lot of time and effort by not having to go through all the logs manually and find the error and cause for it.

Cons

Oracle

  • Although you can add the data you require as more and more data is added, the fixity of it becomes more critical.
  • As the demand, size, and use of the system increase, you may also need to change or acquire more equipment on your servers, although this is an internal inconvenience for the company.

  • Interface is outdated
  • Some syntax slightly different to standard SQL
  • Needs expertise to best create tables so as to not 'skew' database

      For teaching Databases and SQL, I would definitely continue to use MySQL. It provides a good, solid foundation to learn about databases. Also to learn about the SQL language and how it works with the creation, insertion, deletion, updating, and manipulation of data, tables, and databases. This SQL language is a foundation and can be used to learn many other database related concepts.

      Usability

      Oracle

      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.

      MongoDB is an application oriented solution with unstructured data. Percona Server for MySQL is a good solution when looking for performance peaks and the amount of data grows continuously over time. MySQL is the ideal solution when we have a data schema defined and we do not have great requirements at the performance level.

      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

      Oracle

      • It has made site management through a CMS like WordPress or Drupal infinitely easier to manage.
      • It is a critical part of the LAMP, WAMP and MAMP stack and has been a major driver of innovation in the content-management-system space, pushing site and web-application development toward greater democratization.
      • It has proved to be very reliable and easy to set up and administer and saves me tremendous time troubleshooting query and performance issues.

      • 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.
