PostgreSQL vs. MySQL: A Comparison of Enterprise Suitability
sponsored by EnterpriseDB Corporation

This paper presents a comparison between PostgreSQL and MySQL. Fundamental and more sophisticated features and performance that characterize enterprise capable databases are contrasted between PostgreSQL and MySQL. These topics include:

  • Database performance
  • Query optimization
  • ACID Transaction support
  • Data durability
  • Referential integrity
  • Support for procedural languages and triggers
  • Support for industry standard authentication methods

Many of MySQL's limitations only become apparent post-deployment, when a full re-architecting of an organization’s data infrastructure is difficult. This comparison can be very useful to those who have little or no experience when it comes to MySQL in deployment.
