    "MySQL comes bundled with Wordpress which helped me get a strong database structure right at the start. I found it easy to set up MySQL database and the commands work well. I love how Wordpress integrates and builds my database for me. I feel MySQL keeps me organized and enjoy reviewing the reports and information about my various tables."

    "If you could use an open source database server, I can recommend MariaDB. I've found it fast, dependable, and easy to use. The company says that large users such as Wikipedia and Google use this server and while I don't have that quantity of need, I have the same need for quality and dependability which I find in this service. I easily can recommend MariaDB."
