Overall Satisfaction with MySQL

MySQL engine is currently being used in some of the business unit systems in my current organization. This is being considered as the first option when creating new applications or systems if there are low-budget projects and if the application is web-based driven.
  • Cost constraints
  • Web based applications deployments
  • Small to mid-enterprise projects
  • Tools for performance insights.
  • Easy to do the manual failover.
  • Easy detection of errors.
  • Easy to check index fragmentations.
  • 100% cost savings when applied the right DB technology for the right application.
  • Less known, recommended and considered by most enterprise systems developers.
  • DBAs work more on scripting due to lack of easily available tools for DB maintenance.
