Flexible Open Source Database Server

  • May 14, 2014
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The variety of database engines available and a huge community. MyISAM, InnoDB, IBMDB2I, MERGE, MEMORY, EXAMPLE, FEDERATED, ARCHIVE, CSV, BLACKHOLE, and even NOSQL (third party add-on)
What do you dislike?
Very easy to do the wrong implementations of a database storage engine. (MyIsam vs InnoDB vs IBMDB2...etc)
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Datas storage locally AND in the cloud.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Know your data, design your data storage. Changing the data architecture later is VERY painful

Free and Paid Versions, Microsoft Like

  • May 14, 2014
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
We really liked the cost and with some of our purchased software only works with MySql. From someone that has moved from the Microsoft world to the Open Source world, MySQL felt very familiar. Configuration was not to difficult but getting used to the command was, I'll say interesting.
What do you dislike?
Versions. So many versions and so many flavors. At times it was overwhelming which version to choose for what.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
A meta store that is required to run our chosen software.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Depending on your use case MySQL might be the perfect fit. It is not our "standard" database.

Open Source "Standard" for SQL databases

  • March 24, 2014
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
It's the gold standard for databases for web sites. Everything works with it.
What do you dislike?
I'm concerned about Oracle's ownership and the MySQL's future. I've moved two of my sites to MariaDB.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Drupal and Wordpress websites, plus a couple of online databases. Simple solutions because there's a lot of helpful code out there.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Look at MariaDB as well.

Stable free database - Could be all you need

  • March 01, 2014
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
It's free, Open Source and cross-platform. It seems to be the default DB on the web and is available with most hosting offers.
Widely known, so there are plenty of books, tutorials or courses you can find to learn how to use it.
What do you dislike?
Can be complex to use and properly configure.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Main database for my Drupal-powered website. Stable and reliable so far.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
It is one of the most used DB systems around, especially for web hosting. But would not use it without a good interface. For shared hosting, phpMyAdmin is a good option.

Good for small to medium sized databases. Quick and easy to use.

  • October 02, 2013
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Easy to use.
You don't have to do complex functions on the date fields. Very simple and easy to remember / use functions - unlike Oracle.
Replication is easy to setup and use. Allowed us to bring production data, real-time into a reporting environment - thereby allowing live data feeds without really querying production.
What do you dislike?
Does not scale well. Performance issues once you have too much data.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Good for small to medium sized databases. Beyond that, you really ought to be looking for something else.

Tricky, Tricky

  • August 24, 2013

What do you like best?
I like the functionality of MySQL, and what you can do with it is really dynamic.
What do you dislike?
It is updated often - and some changes are way too major to follow easily.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Stick to it. You'll get it eventually.

Goes with PHP like bread and butter

  • May 31, 2013
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Great documentation, free, works well with open source. Some commonly used web technologies like PHP are frequently paired up with it.
What do you dislike?
The direction of the MySQL development is uncertain now that its been purchased by Oracle. MySQL also lacks development tools, but you can easily find some both for purchase and for free. I recommend MySQL Workbench.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you are running a small to medium sized web business, MySQL is a great choice. Although, I think it is best suited for a database interfaced into another system as it is somewhat inconvenient to use for building reports.

Easy to use, great for small websites

  • March 27, 2013
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
This is a nice little database engine that is great for small to mid sized businesses.... best of all it's free. It's also one of the most popular database engines that's used by websites so there's a ton of easy to find documentation and support available online.
What do you dislike?
This isn't really an enterprise database. It works great for a small business that needs a web presence and a few small custom applications to keep things humming along smoothly, but as your business grows, you'll eventually need to look into one of the other Oracle products or Microsoft SQL Server
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Determine how quickly your business is planning to grow and how much you'll be relying on your database engine to run your business. If you're planning on being a small to mid-size company for a long time, this will be a great, money saving choice. On the other hand, if you're planning on growing fast (or are already big), you'll probably want to consider something else.

Easy and free, good for small scale implementations.

  • March 10, 2013
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Excellent free relational database. Widely used and plenty of documentation and community support; MySQL powers a good chunk of the web. It is well-suited to small projects, particularly where enterprise-class deatabases like MS SQL or Oracle are overkill, and all you need is a flexible, powerful data store in minutes and not days.
What do you dislike?
Not the best package for enterprise use. Need to always stay current on your MySQL version to avoid getting whacked by vulnerabilities, as there seem to be a steady stream of these affecting MySQL.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
A good option for small-scale personal or internal projects. Don't over use it. Keep it up to date.
