Overall Satisfaction with MySQL

A client needed MySQL as part of a local server and app (Decisions) for their investment department for day to day analysis. We're required to set up MySQL with each user who needs this set up on their workstation and ensure it's being accessed and used successfully by the Decisions app.
  • Easy Setup
  • Relative Stability
  • Secure
  • Not as efficient with large databases
  • Takes time to get some features up and running
  • Can be hard to scale
  • Streamlined processes
  • More efficient with time
  • Issues with corrupted large databases can be a huge negative
Higher levels of security and can handle multiple connections simultaneously which is required for our clients work. It also supports XML format which we've had issues with SQLite handling - doesn't appear to support it.

Do you think MySQL delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with MySQL's feature set?


Did MySQL live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of MySQL go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy MySQL again?


MySQL has worked great when it's tied into other business apps and/or databases that aren't too large. Once the databases become too large, it starts becoming more inefficient and has issues at times with file corruption. I don't see MySQL being as scalable as others which can be a problem as growth occurs.
