"The initial setup was simple."
"We use the basic features of MySQL. The interface that allows us to see the parameters of the server is good."
"Apart from the features that are in the enterprise part, we find the database to be valuable. The connectors and the backup features are valuable as well. We use the basic database. We don't really use the extra features. Our clients like the security features in the database."
"I like MySQL because of its community."
"It's a good tool, a good database platform."
"MySQL is a popular database platform for businesses because it is extremely easy to use."
"One of the most valuable features is MySQL's ability to run our email system. We use a system called Colab."
"It has a lot of features. The RDBMS, consistency, and multi-user features are valuable."
"MySQL is open-source. There are a lot of open-source communities trying to come up with their own patches, and to come up with their own features, which help MySQL develop faster than traditional databases like Oracle, which is closed source."
"The solution needs to create a management tool. Right now, the solution has tools for creating a local installation, but it's too simplistic. We need something that's a bit more complex so that we can extend the tools with our scripts."
"We require more ease of use, scalability, and high availability. These are some of the critical features that we use and look for in a product. It should be easier to manage clusters. Scalability is very important for us because our projects and concurrency requirements are quite big. We also require high availability of the server, application, and other things. It should also have more performance-based features or enhancements from the performance point of view. When we divide a database, it should be able to handle the queries very fast."
"Integration is a key feature in need of improvement."
"As an open-source product, there isn't really any technical support available if you get into trouble or have issues."
"Rather than going in-depth about the technical features, which a technical person can directly tell, I would say that MySQL should be able to adapt to the next framework. The 5G framework means an unstructured framework. So if MySQL becomes smoother and more adaptable, it'll be easier."
"Its scalability can be better. It is probably not as scalable as Oracle. I had some issues with connectors. I used it from a C++ program, and it required some work to make it run, but finally, it worked."
"Stability needs improvement and the backup needs to be enhanced."
"MySQL tutorials and guides could be improved. Often they are too complex for someone with no database experience to understand."
"I would like to have features that allow us to jump between the cloud and our on-premises system."

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.
MySQL is a fast and relatively inexpensive database management system. It can easily integrate with a wide variety of programming languages, and it is considered to be a very reliable option. One of the most prominent features that customers seem to enjoy is the easy scalability of this system.
