MySQL


Everyone says MySQL is not perfect at the moment, especial when it comes to large scale websites.

What are the negative issues currently associated with it?

thanks

Microsoft doesn't like it because companies like Amazon and Google and a large portion of most of the web sites of the world successfuly use mySQL (instead of buying licenses for Microsoft SQL Server).

Oracle used to feel the same way - then they bought the company that bought mySQL. I'm not sure how they feel now :-)

If MySQL does what you want, then it's probably going to be ideal.

I would simple Google and read about different major RDBMS's (Oracle, DB-2, SQL Server, PostgressSql, mySQL); read about other major DB solutions (e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embedded_database) and then make up your own mind what suits your needs.

There is no absolute "SQL Server is better than mySQL"; or vice versa.

IMHO .. PSM

Everyone should also have a motivation/reasoning when they say so. Read them and you'll know. If they don't give a reason, it's nonsense.

Note that I don't say that MySQL is good or bad (it suites my limited needs).
