Overall Satisfaction with MySQL

MySQL is used as a data repository for all our online, batch, and reporting needs.
  • Easy to use.
  • Lots of resources online.
  • Technical support is very accessible and they respond quickly.
  • More SQL analytic functions.
  • Fully support ANSI standard features.
  • Negative impact is that MySQL does not support Analytics. We have to transfer/replicate data to another DB to be able to do Analytics or use Analytics applications.
  • The positive impact is that it's cheap/affordable.
Oracle has tons of SQL features that others do not have (e.g. bulk processing), and the price is good.
It is well suited for capturing, storing, and retrieving data. It is less appropriate for applications heavy on OLTP and OLAP transactions.

Using MySQL

200 - Development, support (i.e. technical and application), and clients.
3 - Development group has to be SQL trained.
  • Application development.
  • Application/client support.

Evaluating MySQL and Competitors
