Pros: Being an integral part of a WAMP or LAMP server setup which is used regularly, MySQL has a strong user community, is fast and is easily administered with PHPMyAdmin. There are also several other GUI's that can be used to administer a MySQL installation.

Cons: Occasional problems with the MySQL drivers/connectors e.g. using PDO v MySQLi v MySQL and the resulting problems with performance.

Overall: A reliable (apart from the MySQL driver issues) RDMS which I use every day on my Wordpress installations.

Pros: I can define mysql as something that gives "Good performance reducing project cost".
It's really rich in features when we use foreign keys and some indexing.
For starting a project,
It's good option as it provide simple structures and comprehensive features.

Cons: The GUI
It seems like "very old" time's GUI. You can have something user friendly and still eye catching GUI .
The portability
It's really hard to port project from one DBMS to other when I implement it in mysql.
8tb is the limit, so it's not that useful while dealing with really BIG DATA.

Pros: iv'e been developing for a few years now and using MySQL has made my programming an absolute breeze. MySQL is designed to focus on big data, especially for web development I originally used Microsoft SQL Server but chose to use MySQL instead which provides a great opportunity for a platform that is easy to integrate., is easily scaleable and has great data integrity. As i use MySQL for my company, we now have over 300 various active tables processing our data on a daily basis. Plugging into my IDE's for web development is extremely easy and reliable to work with. Because of its popularity over the years, there are solutions to nearly everything in MySQL. The amount of online learning material makes this a simple investment for anyone looking to utilize databases in their projects

MySQL is a great place to start for companies that don't foresee using relational databases.

Cons: Porting a MySQL application to Microsoft SQL Server, or to a competing SQL database engine, requires a significant amount work. as MYSQL is not backward compatible. Although in theory it is scalable up to 8 TB, MySQL can not work efficiently with large database.

Overall: As it's extremely easy to use, iv'e had no reason to change over to another database manager. However in theory it is scalable up to 8 TB, MySQL can not work efficiently with large database which is becoming a growing concern for me as my companies data is growing substantially.

Pros: The tool is open source and allows to verify the fundamental questions such as the how and where of the data that has been loaded, as well as to develop new variants to the processes defined in the application, as a user you can manage the security systems and define the restrictions without much difficulty.
MySQL operates in any operating system and has a very good management speed, in fact, I think it is the database manager with the best speed of response to the requested processes. Additionally, it has a very low data corruption index, which makes it a good option for data associated with the cloud.
It is necessary to have a good definition of the relationships that link the different associated information tables, this will allow the behavior of the database within the manager to be excellent.
It can be run on a computer with limited resources

Cons: It requires that you invest a good time in learning it, since the program is not intuitive, as the administrators of databases linked to companies.
There are many processes that are not documented in detail or intended for people with little experience.
Errors can be generated in processes linked to a multiple edition

Overall: It allowed me to create my first relational database, with very little cost and scarce technological resources, which I linked to postgis and through an open source environment to mount a small gis that satisfied the requirements of the institution where I was part at that time

It is the best database I have ever used. It is very easy to use and learning is very fast.

table.
- The CAST () conversion function does not support conversion to REAL or BIGINT.
- The MySQL documentation that these shortcomings were not a problem, since that was what they needed in principle.

Pros: MySQL is open source software that allows anyone to use it and modify it. Anyone can download the MySQL source code and use it without paying. Anyone interested can study the source code and adjust it to their needs.

MySQl is a relational, multi-threaded and multi-user database system with more than six million installations and is widely used in web applications, such as Drupal or phpBB, on platforms (Linux / Windows-Apache-MySQL-PHP / Perl / Python)

Its popularity as a web application is mostly related to PHP, which usually appears in combination with MySQL.

This database manager is one of the best in terms of performance since the speed of opreciones is very good.

You can be executed in low-resource machines since the consumption of requirements for its execution is very low.

It supports several opertative systems and is very easy to install and configure.

There are a number of good quality software tools that provide management and development workspace functions. MySQL Workbench and TOAD for MySQL are good examples.

Being open source there is a large amount of help on the Internet and this should help to reduce, in a production environment, incident handling times. Also, a lot of information so that your development team can read.

Cons: A large percentage of MySQL utilities are not documented.

The support for triggers is basic so there are certain limitations in what can be done with them.

By handling referential integrity with non-transactional MyISAM tables.
It does not treat them differently from the rest of the fields.

Privileges for a table are not automatically deleted when a table is deleted.

A REVOKE command must be explicitly used to remove privileges from a table.

Overall: I am a developer of systems under web environment, and in many opportunities I use the MySQL database manager, it is a fundamental tool in my team for a long time.

Pros: MySQL is a good RDBMS. Can do anything you need and can manage a very large amount of datas as like as a very important RDBMS like Oracle od MS Sql Server. You need a database for your web site, MySQL is perfect. You need a database for DWH? MySQL can help you. Need communicate information to others systems? MySQL id the database for you. Can use it easily with a lot of clients programs (Windows, Linux, MacOS) and by browser (phpMyAdmin, for example). I saw a lot of Case Use of MySQL in Enterprise environment and some Database Administrator prefer it instead of Oracle or similar.

Cons: Oracle and Ms SQL Server have more years of experience rather than MySQL, but this gap will be reduced soon in a few years.

Pros: MySQL has earned an outstanding reputation, and now is the DB that powers over a quarter of the entire internet. Consider the fact that WordPress runs on MySQL and it powers 28% of the entire internet, yet there are loads of other sites using it.

MySQL is nothing to trifle with, and unless you want MS SQL or you're in need of a NoSQL DB like MongoDB, you'll want the quality and full-featured MySQL.

Oh, and if you plan to manage your DB visually, MySQL Workbench is best for that.

Cons: While I understand the technical reasons why it must be so (different algorithms), I wish we could just use MyISAM and InnoDB all in one engine for optimization. Maybe there's some workaround. It's nothing wrong with MySQL, it's just a small drawback.

Overall: MySQL is awesome!

Pros: If we talk about freedom in DB handlers, we find that MySQL is one of the most popular managers in the network. Its goal has been to be the fastest possible, in addition to having stored procedures and other features that the developers are very grateful for (because they save hundreds of lines of code), i consider that MySQL has improved tools mainly for windows, many are also available for Linux but they are not always updated or have the same benefits

Cons: In my experience i say that the size limit of the DB is limited by the operating system, the ACID compatibility depends on the storage engine like the foreign keys, and that i do not present a report service

Overall: I've been consulting for my aunt's company and two friends for more than a year. Without formal training, i was forced to learn on my own how to use this software and i have had growth as a developer and i believe that many others should feel the same

Pros: Although this database is aimed for the tech savvy, we did not have any problem at all in the 12 years that we've been using it. No corruptions, no data loss and free.
Performance is good. May be a little slower than others in huge databases although we didn't get to that point yet. We have tables with millions of records that query and update even quicker than SQL server.

The community is enormous and searching the web you can get help with any issue or doubt.

It can be used as server over Windows and Linux OS's, beeing the latter the one that ofers the best performance of both.
Paid support is available.

Cons: In Linux maintenance, updates and all that stuff is done using command line which is ok but not that convenient. Of course there are third party tools.

Overall: An excellent database with many years of experience and improvement...and it's even free!

Cons: What I like the least is that they do not allow the creation of domains, which makes the creation of custom data types a little laborious.

Overall: I have developed softaware using the database manager and it has been very useful and easy to use. On the other hand, I have assigned its use in the field of Database Design, which I dictate and the students have obtained a satisfactory experience and their understanding has been easy.

Pros: First of all it has free version. This database management system is pretty easy to install. Excellent response times even with very large 5TB databases in couple of seconds that, in conjunction with non-relational databases, can be a great solution for big data. Uses the universal sql query language for most DBMS. For you available as a graphical management interface and console, which makes the management very flexible for certain situations, depending on what kind of operation you need to carry out. Given the popularity of this database also would like to mention a huge community that in most cases you can find answers to your questions do not resort to professional help that can save your money. Open source.

Cons: This database management system is not compatible with all SQL standards. MySQL does not support common table expression, the validation constraints on SQL. MySQL does not support full outer join.

Recommendations to other buyers: This can be recommended to use in web application and especially if you are restricted in your budget.

Pros: MySQL is hands down the best database software out there. It is free and there is tons of documentation. Creating databases have never been so much easier. Also filling in tables is so easy. Just love how the data can be visualized as well with a few commands. You can also narrow down your search results to get what you want. If you also see some missing data filling in data is so easy. It is also easy to alter data as well. Just use this tool, it is amazing.

Cons: Huge learning curve. You have to learn a lot about databases before you get your hands dirty. Learning how to make a good database takes time. What really tripped me up when I was learning were the different types of joins(natural join, left join, right join...). There is documentation to back it up, but it is very vague at times.

Overall: Free easy to use software. I created tons of databases and tables with important information. It is also really easy to visualize your data. Best software hands down for storing big data to small data. Would not use any other database software since it can be integrated easily with numerous software!

Technical requirements are relatively low, since the database server focuses on efficiency versus lots of user interface niceties. There are plenty of tools available, both from Oracle (the owners of MySQL) and third party developers that can be used to manage the servers and databases.

Cons: There's not a native way to sync multiple clusters of databases. There are third party tools to do this, but it would be nice if there were a native capability built-in to keep enviroments somewat simpler.

Pros: Easy to create procedure and tables. We can store a large amount of data on this. Even i have a lot of data in procedure still it gives good performance. Indexes and cluster feature allow improving queries performance.

Cons: There is one small thing I noticed it does not show complete info on SQL execution plan if we have large SQL plan.

Overall: Storing energy data for customers and over the years I got many trusted customer as they allow me to store their credentials as well.

Pros: My experience with MySQL is very good, a very light and easy to handle database.My experience with MySQL is very good, a very light and easy to handle database.
The sql statements are simple, it is a database that can be installed on almost any computer, it does not have many hardware requirements. In addition, it is available in almost all hosting providers. I like to connect it with web systems.

Cons: MySQL is not recommended for large volumes of data, since queries become extremely slow. Also, you can not use prepared statements, you can only create dynamic SQL statements (concatenating strings), in these cases you have to use tools like addslashes, htmlspecialchars and others; and the other, is not object oriented.

Overall: MySQL allows me to create a database for a website in a quick and easy way without major worries. When I'm going to make a simple system, I only think of MySQL.

One of the largest databases systems in the world, and I can see why, so powerful.

Pros: I've been using MySQL for about 10 years now, and still learning new things with it. It's powerful as I can query millions of records in seconds. It's flexible and powerful to be able to power websites of all sizes.

Cons: Other database systems can have multi-dimensional queries, would love something like this in MySQL, however, it'll probably never happen as it's against the way MySQL is structured / operates etc.

Overall: I am able to power all my websites from this database, and used correctly, it'll work flawlessly.

Pros: Easy to configure, and in the case of innodb can be quite resilient when configured properly; myisam not durable at all but simplicity can be an advantage.

Cons: It's almost like every single feature wasn't thought through, and the availability to run in very nconstrained configurations can make life hard; SQL databases are meant to adhere to strict rules for a reason. Separation of database engine and "pluggable" underlying storage is a major disadvantage.

Great slim database software that can be spun up quick.

Pros: allows applications written in various programming languages to access their databases, thanks to its proven performance, reliability and ease of use, it is a database option for web-based applications due to its low concurrency in the modification of data and the environment is intensive in reading data, which makes MySQL ideal for this type of applications, is an alternative as an integrated database, distributed by thousands of ISV and OEM.

Cons: It causes integrity problems in highly concurrent environments at the time of modification. It has problems with the security vulnerability which arises because there is an encryption standard that can be used within a procedure stored in the database. In turn A large percentage of MySQL utilities are not documented and The size of the MySQL database can not work efficiently with large database. It also supports the declaration of foreign or foreign keys in the creation of tables.

Overall: Its main benefit is its ease to handle it. You can build and interact with a MySQL database, following simple rules in the SQL language that is the standard language. It can be executed in many systems since it is compatible with many systems.

I widely recommend this database since there's a lot of documentation on the web and the SQL Language used is very common so even in general examples a lot of people use a sintax that will work with MySQL.

Overall: The backend of the application of the place I work use MySQL

Pros: The ease of working with the data makes MySQL one of my preferred databases. That there is a free license for certain customer types is also a benefit

Cons: The user interface would be better if I could query multiple sets and see them in the same pane rather than have multiple panes. Other providers allow for multiple sets in the same pane. Also, I am not a fan of the backups. Text based files created with the data is not my preferred way

Overall: An excellent database my customers can afford to buy to work with my products.

You have the option to either choose from the user friendly GUI or the command line interface.

Once tables have been properly constructed, it's good at handling large data sets.

Cons: Lacks certain features that are included with other DBMS systems out of the box.

Though open source, you still have to pay for customer support.

Cons: I think it could be simpler to manage it, maybe a better user experience for people which doesn't have enough coding skills.

Pros: All you need to get it up and running is to have a server, any kind of machine will do that work, and everything else is free!, also, MySQL can handle large amount of data with a very fast backend mechanism.

Cons: Some features that i used to have in other SQL applications are still missing (such as multiple db connections on a single select statement as Oracle is having)

Overall: Database of the company i work for, is all based on MySQL, no need to look further and pay money for other non free databases soltions
