Overall Satisfaction with MySQL

I am using MySQL as a transactional database for web application. With MySQL we can store data needed across our web application. I find it really useful and reliable. It is really good for open source applications and is powerful as well. It is very popular and widely used, with good online support. Many tools are available to make use of MySQL.
  • Easy to set up: Quick and easy to set up in a production environment.
  • Good support online: Very good support is available online as many people are using it.
  • Scalable and stable: It is very scalable and stable across different platforms.
  • Learning Curve: A small learning curve if you want to change the configuration of mysql to improve the performance.
  • Does not do too well in case of query optimization.
  • I think Return on investment is really good for Mysql.
  • It provides all the necessary functionality at a nominal cost.
  • A small learning curve is required to get familiar with different functionalities provided by mysql.
MySQL stands up and above the list of different softwares available online. I find it to be easy to use, scalable, and has good performance as compared to other softwares.
I use Mysql for web applications and performance is great for that. We use Mysql as a backend database for our use cases.
