Overall Satisfaction with MySQL

It was used across the whole organization internally. It was picked because of the easy integration, great support, and stability. For internal usage, they needed a cost-effective but trustworthy solution. Also from experience, the developers are familiar with MySql the most, they would able to use the juniors to work on the internal solutions first and learn the way.
  • Easy to get started.
  • Lightweight, but scalable.
  • Well known, well supported.
  • Owned by oracle.
  • Limitations of fine-tuning.
  • Lack of failover.
  • Cheap.
  • Easy to learn.
  • Easy to migrate to or from.
For our needs, MySql was enough and it was better known than the others.
For internal usage for medium-size companies, for startups, and for demo projects, it is more than well suited. However, as it is scalable to a point, it is no match after a point to Oracle DB or IBM/2 as they were created to provide huge performance and to support big company's needs.
