"I use CockroachDB to test big data samples and to create the best structure for databases. We have four users and required 10 people for deployment and maintenance."
"The one interesting thing about this product is that it is open source. It comes from an open source product. MySQL has been positioned as open source, but it also provides support."
"The connectivity with PHP is quite good."
"MySQL is a popular database platform for businesses because it is extremely easy to use."
"It is easy to use. It is simple to implement, which makes it suitable for our projects because we have deadlines. MySQL is also open-source, which is another plus point."
"Table partitioning is most valuable. It is easy to use."
"One of the most valuable features is MySQL's ability to run our email system. We use a system called Colab."
"However, it is easy to scale MySQL using the functions provided with the product."
"The solution is easy to use."
"Cockroach does not support all types of protocols. I need to improve it myself to support a CouchDB on my network."
"Sometimes, I get lost in the toggles and buttons, and a better visual design would be nice. The layout is not user-friendly or efficient."
"Stability needs improvement and the backup needs to be enhanced."
"We want to continue using MySQL but it merged with Oracle and the scalage changed."
"In terms of what I'd like to see in the next release, one thing that's always missing is dash boarding. There's no real BI tool for MySQL, like there is in Yellowfin and all the different tools that you get. They all have MySQL connectors, but there's no specific BI tool for MySQL. These open source projects have sprung up, but they're more general purpose."
"On the database side, it should be really lightweight, and the data structure should be like MongoDB."
"It isn't as reliable as an SQL Server."
"MySQL tutorials and guides could be improved. Often they are too complex for someone with no database experience to understand."
"The solution could be more secure."

CockroachDB is inspired by Google’sand technologies, and it’s completely .
Until its recent acquisition by Oracle, MySQL was possibly the most renowned open source database enterprise package that could be accessed completely for free. With the merger, the server increased both its features and its price tag, but there is still a free version available to the general community to contribute ideas and suggestions.
