Boundary vs phpMyAdmin: What are the differences?

Developers describe Boundary as "Real-time monitoring for server and applications with beatiful UI". Monitor it all: web servers, load balancers, application back-ends, big data clusters, queues, caching nodes, or databases. Boundary provides insights no matter what stack you use, whether you deploy in the cloud or your data center. On the other hand, phpMyAdmin is detailed as "A free software, for MySQL and MariaDB". As a portable web application written primarily in PHP, it has become one of the most popular MySQL administration tools, especially for web hosting services.

Boundary can be classified as a tool in the "Performance Monitoring" category, while phpMyAdmin is grouped under "Database Tools".

Decisions about Boundary and phpMyAdmin
Adam Taylor

We were looking a tool that would allow us to do MySQL and PostgreSQL development/administration from a single tool. We decided on Navicat Premium because it can connect to MySQL, MariaDB, MongoDB, SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and SQLite databases - and simultaneously. It's also compatible with Amazon RDS and Microsoft Azure, which we also use.

Moreover, we previously experienced the occasional freezing and crashing in MySQL Workbench. It also suffered from a poor design, with certain features being a bit difficult to find. Meanwhile, phpMyAdmin lacked schema visualization tools and seemed better suited to lightweight day to day transactions than some of the big jobs that we needed to do.
