While Eclipse is very successful for Java Development, MySQL and PostgreSQL are very populating open source Databases.We cannot compare with brand name like Oracle, Microsoft, or IBM, but MySQL and PostgreSQL are very reasonable for small business. If your data is less than a terabyte, both MySQL and PostgreSQL definitely can handle it. However, if your data is really big, you better think of Oracle, DB2, and Microsoft enterprise RDBMSes. Open source database is less secure than brand name database, so you have to keep in mind that “how safe is my data” (Gravelle, 2011).
