Overall Satisfaction with MySQL

MySQL gets used for the most part in our infrastructure. If it is a website, an API, or something else, MySQL is the most used. It's used for data storage and user management. Our MySQL instance is available to every developer who needs to save something in a database, which is one of the reasons why it has so many use cases for us.
  • MySQL is very fast, so a request doesn't take long
  • MySQL has many configuration options
  • We had never any problems like a destroyed database
  • MySQL has a problem when databases are getting too big
  • Support for NoSQL
  • Helps in providing data
  • MySQL doesn't need a big server to run
We're using InfluxDB for statistics. MongoDB is getting used for big documents which are more accessible for us when saved as documents in MongoDB. Redis is used for caching. PostgreSQL is mainly there to get used for software that only supports this type of database.

Do you think MySQL delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

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?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy MySQL again?

Yes

I recommend MySQL for everyone who needs a fast database for use cases like user management, APIs, and some data storages, but I don't recommend MySQL for large data and projects with very special use cases or if you don't have any clue about SQL language because it can be hard to get into sometimes.
