MySQL 5.7 review

  • March 24, 2022
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
User friendly and easy to use. Though it is a opensource when taking help from community there is a huge helpful help which is required at different development phases.
What do you dislike?
As there is a requirement of installing the product on single machine, extra softwares needs to be installed on top of Mysql to make it work as per the requiremnt.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Database management at RDBMS level. Also this product is available for free so a learner can also use this product to make their knowledge upto the mark. This is required in learning perspectives.

MySql 5.7 - Aging But Reliable

  • March 15, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Overall I like the ease of use of the language. It gets most jobs done, and it gets them done in a way that I can hand off to a less seasoned developer. It is a good database language, from a business standpoint, for a variety of application cases. Understanding that it lacks the bells and whistles of some other options, including MySQL 8.x, it does what you need it to do, and has been doing it for over a decade.
What do you dislike?
It lacks some advanced features of other offerings, and is even missing some quality of life features. There are certain design decisions that add workload when trying to accomplish simple tasks. It also predates some more powerful features introduced in MySQL 8.x like flow control statements.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We've used MySQL 5.7 in close to 20 different projects of varying scales over the last 15 years. It replaced some older MSSQL databases, handled a transition from an ancient CSV and DLL library database living MSDOS, and was used to stand up a myriad of small business data solutions across our company and affiliates. It has been implemented for in-house solutions as well as public-facing platforms, from simple data repositories to full APIs.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
MySQL 5.7 is reliable, and most importantly, easy. Unless you have a very specific business use case, it will handle pretty much anything you need it to do up to a certain point of scalability.

Lightweight and Intuitive.

What do you like best?
Over the years I have experimented with a multitude of database solutions to integrate into my personal projects. I am certain there are few I haven't tried. Ultimately I always come back to MySQL because I find it incredibly easy to set up, use and manage. With a simple lightweight program, I can run Apache locally on my machine and handle unlimited databases if I choose.
What do you dislike?
This is by far my favorite database solution, so by comparison to other solutions, there is really nothing I don't like. There are a variety of ways to access the data, so learning the different commands and styles had a little bit of a learning curve, but once you find your sweet spot it's all good!
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
The biggest problem I had was the ability to house my projects locally on my laptop without using up a ton of resources. Using MySQL as my solution was the perfect fix. The apps running to support my database projects barely make the resource "radar."
