In comparison with those, MySQL is much easier to use and handle.

It can run on different platforms like Linux, Solaris, Windows, etc. It is a good choice for those projects that target multiple platforms, in particular web applications. In fact, MySQL is part of the famous LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP) server stack, which is used all over the world for developing web applications. MySQL supports many platforms with different languages like C, C ++, PHP, PERL, JAVA, Python, etc.

Any disruption or downtime directly affects the business and income; therefore, high availability should not be overlooked. MySQL is reasonably reliable and always available using cluster and replication configurations. Clustered servers handle failures instantly and manage the failover portion to keep your system available most of the time. If one server goes down, it redirects the user's request to another node and performs the requested operation.

MySQL offers encryption using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, data masking, authentication plugins, and other layers of security to protect data integrity.
