Overall Satisfaction with MySQL

I am a Research Engineer in VizioChron, Inc. I have to use MySQL often. First, it is used by consumers that I work with. Second I have to do some experimental designs and implementations with the use of it. As it is open source it is easy to use it in common web projects e.g. LAMP.
  • Database works well with MyPHP
  • There is design that uses the database with Wordpress
  • It is easily integrated with web engines, e.g. Apache
  • Some migration SQL<>MySQL would be in demand
  • Maybe some features that MongoDB has could enhance MySQL
  • Maybe more GUI for simplicity of operations under a Linux environment
  • It saves resources if to use opensource MySQL comparing with use of e.g. MS SQL
  • It allows us to improve ROI as it allows fast deployments and instant utilization
  • MySQL defines the use of open source environment in most cases, and that is a cheaper solution in terms of implementation
Yes - I am a member of the Oracle Academy.

There is no significant impact of that sort. However, membership in the group helps to know the subject to a larger extent. And that results in simplicity of operations with it. Moreover, as it is possible to discuss this or that complexity at the forum it allows simplifying operations even further.
MySQL is a most generic implementation of a database of a sort that is coherent with major designs of web engines and frameworks. As it works in cross-platform environments and easy to deploy it seems to be a competitive choice and prospective solution for integration into web environment for a purpose of hosting a website.
It is a well-suited solution for a web server and web hosting, in my opinion. Moreover, as it is easy to integrate it with web engines it is a good fit for websites that utilize registration feature and membership areas. MySQL has a robust support of command line commands execution and could be operated completely from the terminal.
