Mysql is one of the tools that I use the most in my work since I am an information systems programmer and part of my day,
I like it because it has a graphical interface where I can easily create my databases, tables, functions, place the different types of data (integer, varchar, time), handling a large amount of data and for me it is one of the most powerful data managers that is successful.
You can import and export database, besides it shows a relational graph between the tables, it has a very simple installation and the configuration of the same menera ... for the dba they will have more specific tools for the handling of information, indexing to facilitate the search, stored processes, table relationships. in order for me personally that I am a developer,
I am very useful this tool for the area of development and pilot tests
There is a lack of documentation for some functions.
It works perfect for the smallest data set.
Does not allow data partitions
Creation of reports
Entity-relationship model chart
Basic sql functions
I recommend using this database engine since it is one of the most powerful and additionally used by the most famous cms of the Wordpress area that says a lot about this driver
