Overall Satisfaction with MySQL

MySQL is used by both production and data team as relational database. It supports the back end of our website and our analytics tasks.
  • Deduplicate data automatically by using primary key.
  • Option to bulk load data
  • Scalability. Performance become worse when the data is larger.
  • It provides a data solution allowing frequent update of data and allows for easy query.
MySQL is good solution when data is not very large and frequent update is required. It also provides automatic deduplication of data, which is not available in Hive.
It is best open source relational database.
MySQL is a good solution for OLAP (online analytical processing). Also considering it is open source, it is a good tool for startups.
