What is MySQL?
MySQL is one of the most popular database software options for businesses of all sizes. The software is open source, and highly customizable, so users can set up an instance that meets their needs.
While MySQL is a specific product, NoSQL is a type of database that includes a number of available products. Whether a NoSQL (nonrelational database) product or using MySQL (relational database) is right for you greatly depends on the data you are storing, queries, and flexibility.

  • Investing on multiple software platforms ( Linux, windows ) is being recovered using single Software MySQL on different platforms.

  • This platform is playing an excellent role in my organization by providing reliable and efficient services.
  • It is quite expensive, so small business setups cannot afford it.
  • Sometimes we have to face trouble in licensing. It is quite complicated, so we cannot easily understand it. I have also found some issues in SQL operations regarding the merge join, hash join, etc.
