About MySQL

MySQL is a cloud-based scalable database management system, which enables organizations to securely record, update and manage data in compliance with GDPR, PCI, HIPPA and various regulatory standards. Features include data masking, audit, de-identification, real-time monitoring, provisioning, patching and authentication. The ACID-compliant solution comes with a query analyzer, which helps developers gain visibility into query activities and execution, identify problematic queries and filter out specific issues such as full table scans and bad indexes. Using MySQL Workbench, professionals can perform database modeling, develop queries, configure servers, migrate databases and automate backup and recovery. Administrators can use the Enterprise Firewall, its intrusio...

MySQL is a king of his game

Great

Pros

Very Suitable for ( small / medium ) database sized under 5GB. But, it can also deal with over medium databases by expanding your server resources. I think it is the choice of small app that will expand in the few next months / years, it is really scalable.

Cons

It consumes more ram when the database size gets over 5GB or 10GB of disk space, making it even hareder to make a backup of that size unless you have a very powerful machine with fast nvme.

A software engineer's point of view on MySQL.

I have been working with MySQL for many years. It's a solid database. It's easy to learn and work with. It is ubiquitous so I recommend everyone learn it. A great choice for any emerging application. If you don't know what to use, use MySQL.

Pros

MySQL is a must-learn database for any software engineer. What I like most is the ease of working with MySQL, the large community, and the easily accessible documentation with many examples.

Cons

MySQL is sometimes not enough for BigData applications. That's when I use NoSQL type databases.

Reasons for switching to MySQL

I changed the database from PostgreSQL to MySQL because the project required it.

Lightweight but not up to the mark

When we are looking at non-programmers trying to have a web application which will be maintained by business professionals and has comparatively simple data relations MySQL can be a good options. But for complex systems MySQL won't be a good option.

Pros

It is very easy to setup and requires very less supervision. As MySQL is lightweight the applications are usually faster.

Cons

It is not possible to develop complex systems using MySQL. It doesn't support many object based features like inheritance and functional overloading.

Reasons for switching to MySQL

I needed to develop databases which had complex relations between them. Also NoSQL databases gave better flexibility when handling varied kinds of data.

Experience with MySQL

The manager has been used in the implementation of monitoring software, in addition to being used in a software development project.

Pros

It is a manager that is very easy to implement, adjust and configure based on the needs that you want to meet. The resources needed for its implementation are low, being able to increase them based on what is required, being able to carry out a more adequate distribution of resources.

Cons

The replication and backup tools of the same software have limitations that end up affecting their operation, having to use other means of control and restoration to improve results.

Reasons for choosing MySQL

Due to its customization and transactional capabilities and the few resources needed for its implementation.
