The Advantages of Migrating from SQL Server to MySQL
MySQL was named the top database choice of the Forbes’ Technology Council, with many compelling features that make it a strong contender when compared to commercial databases. In a recent survey, the Council mused the best attributes of any database and came up with a list of must-haves, and the top options. Must-haves include tools that ensure every user has sufficient access to the data they need, whether they’re sitting at their desk or signing on remotely. Other mandatory functions include those that let you quickly query and analyze all your data, are sized correctly for your organization’s needs, and facilitate collaboration with all relevant parties, whether in-house or sprawled across a supply chain. The Council found that MySQL meets their criteria, because it provides exceptional functionality at a low price.
