HI gvvijaybhaskar, first thing it's a open source product.It works on different platforms API's for c,c++,php,java.Next thing it handles large databases.Maximum size for a table is 8TB.Up to 32 indexes for table.Each index may consists of 1 to 16 columns or parts of columns.The maximum index width is 500 bytes.Mysql server generally faster than postgreSQL.Msql server is most secured than SQL.

Quick Data Access :- It is not like SQL Server, but still very fast. For Access database there is no match for MySQL. You will be able to access your database very fast and this will reduce your time and effort and due to this your server will also work very effciently. Free of cost :- As Compare to the other production level database systems for Windows like SQL Server and Oracle, MySQL comes for free. Looking at the big license fees of these commercial RDBMS, it is virtually impossible for a single person or small groups of users to afford their license fees. therefore MY SQL is the best option for them. You can have MySQL for free and if you have this with the server from a web hosting company then the cost of the server will automatically reduce as the web hosting provider does not have to pay for the license fees like some other database management systems.
