Overall Satisfaction with MySQL

MySQL is used in my company to store transactional data of modern applications that have been developed with an SOA architecture oriented to services and microservices, since these require multiple databases that are stable, light and have high availability.
  • Excellent response times when consulting data
  • Easy to learn, use and manage
  • It is necessary to invest time and effort to implement additional functionalities that are required in business environments, such as data replication.
  • When acquired by Oracle, its innovation speed has decreased, which opens the way for other competitors.
  • Supports mobile and web applications of mass consumption of more than 20 thousand users
  • Low implementation and maintenance costs
Not yet, but I'm interested in Oracle user groups - To be aware of the advances, updates and even features to come and get much more out of the tool.
It is one of the tools that we had stopped using some time ago and in the last year we amplified its use thanks to its benefits and new functionalities.

Do you think MySQL delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with MySQL's feature set?

Yes

Did MySQL live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of MySQL go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy MySQL again?

Yes

The strengths of MySQL can be exploited when it is necessary to store relational data in small, medium-sized applications or those in which its architecture is service oriented. I see it less appropriate for it to be used in monolithic applications with complex database structures.
