Overall Satisfaction with MySQL

MySQL is used in our software product, along with MongoDB. Our product manages customer's business files and emails. We use MySQL to store relational data. The product is an enterprise software for the Chinese market. The product has been marketed in China for over 3 years.
  • Free.
  • Easy to use.
  • Easy to find professionals to support it.
  • Tools for performance tuning.
  • Support more data volumes.
  • Professional services in Chinese market.
  • It has been great by using MySQL. When we market our product more, we are looking into buying MySQL professional services, and eventually a commercial license of MySQL.
MySQL is lightweight. It is meant to be used properly with proper architecture. Minimizing the information saved into MySQL is the key. Find the right person to turn MySQL, and deploy the MySQL properly.
MySQL is an excellent alternative for Oracle database. The architects need to be aware of what to be stored in MySQL. MySQL is not proper for storing un-relational data. However, combining MySQL and NoSQL, creates great solutions for common problems. MySQL needs to be used properly to be effective.
