    Well the one thing that sticks out is that you can't make hot backups of InnoDB without shelling out $500 per server per year. Pesky commercial software!
    • Even more reason to ignore MySQL and move to PostgreSQL, where you can make hot backups for free.

      • Hey, if you're going to be aggressive: at least MySQL has realised that people actually scale databases and that replication might be a good idea and so built it into the server ;-)
        • Now, if only MySQL had a more useful replication than replication of statements.
        • And the PostgreSQL team realized that by NOT building it into the distro, they would encourage competing implementations, and in fact, that's what's happened: both free and commercial implementations for free, all of which (I understand) are BETTER than what MySQL has built in.
