Rating and comments for MySQL

Average score 3.14 (based on 58 votes)

given by Bilfurd on February 22, 2007

Now that MySQL provides native stored procedures and user defined functions, MySQL is a full featured database. Users have a choice of database engines to fit the needs of the specific database. I have found MySQL to be extremely robust and FAST.

I would recommend MySQL to any developer looking to build an enterprise class database system, whether or not budget was an issue.

Years behind true databases in features, and lousy
performance to round out the package.

Phenomenal performance for web applications and doesn't cost a penny - By definition it has a VFM of +infinity.

Absolutely wonderful. Great job, guys.

Beware of claims that the software is free. Use of the drivers or access libraries may expose your software to the GPL.

Very quality database engine. Great gui tools for the database as well.

Saying that MySQL is a better alternative than Postgres because is widely spread is like saying Windows is better than Linux since most computers come with it.

Postgres is far more stable, has better management tools, more features and is also free.
