MySQL is the most popular open-source database available today. This popularity has led to the wide availability of MySQL database servers within businesses. FileMaker database hosting is generally available at a premium price from a limited number of web hosting providers.
MySQL also offers better scalability and features such as transactions and database replication. FileMaker Pro Unlimited or Server editions are generally limited to 250 (or fewer) simultaneous users, while MySQL can be expected to serve thousands of simultaneous users.
