MySQL prevents memory leaks that allow forinformation storage effective solutions

What do you dislike?

the non-documentation of some mysql utilities, SQL check constraints are not supported in MySQL. These are used to set a limit for values ​​within a column, Another common problem is, the size of the database. Although in theory it is scalable up to 8 TB, MySQL can not work efficiently with large database. In this context, other platforms such as Oracle and better and are efficient performer with large-scale data.

What do you like best?

The reason why I like MySQL a lot is because of it's user friendly platform. It is also very cost effective. MySQL is organized very well and I think that it's a great program for all people to use.

What do you dislike?

I don't think there is something that I dislike about MySQL. Everything that I've heard from it is great and is very likeable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend others to use MySQL as it is very easy to use and many people are now switching over to it. The reason why I recommend this product is because many more people are switching over to it and it's fairly easy to use. New businesses or other new organizations would be ideal for this as it will be easy to transfer over from what they had before MySQL.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Business problems that I am solving and benefits that I have realized is that many people are able to understand it easier. A business problem is switching everybody over to MySQL because it is a big thing to do to switch everybody and the whole thing to this as we are not very new.

What do you like best?

I like that it is so easy to open scripts and run them in MySQL. it does a great job of putting content in order on websites. one click and you're done!

What do you dislike?

You must have computer programming knowledge to write scripts. This software is only easy to run the scripts if someone else has wrirtten them if you don't have that knowledge.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend learning scripts and computer programming if you want to use this program entirely by yourself to make websites. You will need to hire a computer programmer for your needs if you do not know this stuff. Otherwise it is fairly simple and shows errors that happen so you can fix them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use MySQL when updating my employer's website. He is a nature photographer and MySQL allows you to put photos on a site in alphabetical or numerical order with minimal effort running scripts. It has made updating a website very fast and simple when I used to spend many hours.

MySQL: Best open source DB

Reviewed On

What do you like best?

Best thing about MySQL is, It's quite easy to install and use. By using some third party tools you can make it even more cooler. e.g. mk-query-digest & mydumper. Recently, it has gained more popularity as it's being used by loads of major corporations like Twitter, Alibaba, Amazon etc.

What do you dislike?

Most of the people things it's free, but it's quite expensive too. Which depends on for what you are planning to use it for. It could range from FREE to $15K+.

It somehow lacks in scaling, when it's forced to do too many operations at given time.

I don't know why MySQL is trying to do everything, which it should not. It's dependency on Addons sometimes makes task complex and hard to track and maintain.

Recommendations to others considering the product

MySQL is a free-to-use, open-source database. It helps us in effective management of databases by connecting them to the software. It is a stable, reliable and powerful. Quite suited for low & mid-level organization.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Personally, i have used MySQL in development of several Web & desktop based application. Additionally, i have also experimented lot using it. Being it's open source gives you lot of flexibility. It's community driven development gives us exposure to lots of third party tools which has made my work easier.

What do you like best?

I started using MySQL simply because our production platform uses it and we didn't like the reporting we were getting. I was able to go from complete novice to a report and process creating junkie in short order. It has transformed the information we share and our ability to rely on actual measurements instead of gut-feeling.

What do you dislike?

While it is easy to use it takes quite a bit of time for the timid and afraid to get comfortable with. I'd love to see a great user-friendly front-end tool for Windows.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Where we previously used multiple Excel spreadsheets to track our progress across multiple departments we now rely on our MySQL database and its various tables and triggers to provide us with information. We now have centralized data and have been able to create enough automations to reduce the manual data entry to the point that we were able to repurpose 2 full-time employees.
