MySQL vs Sequelize: What are the differences?

MySQL: The world's most popular open source database. The MySQL software delivers a very fast, multi-threaded, multi-user, and robust SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. MySQL Server is intended for mission-critical, heavy-load production systems as well as for embedding into mass-deployed software; Sequelize: Easy-to-use multi sql dialect ORM for Node.js & io.js. Sequelize is a promise-based ORM for Node.js and io.js. It supports the dialects PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, SQLite and MSSQL and features solid transaction support, relations, read replication and more.

MySQL can be classified as a tool in the "Databases" category, while Sequelize is grouped under "Object Relational Mapper (ORM)".

"Sql" is the top reason why over 778 developers like MySQL, while over 17 developers mention "Good ORM for node.js" as the leading cause for choosing Sequelize.

MySQL and Sequelize are both open source tools. Sequelize with 19.2K GitHub stars and 3.01K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than MySQL with 3.98K GitHub stars and 1.56K GitHub forks.

Airbnb, Uber Technologies, and Netflix are some of the popular companies that use MySQL, whereas Sequelize is used by WebbyLab, Decision6, and Hostr. MySQL has a broader approval, being mentioned in 2991 company stacks & 3050 developers stacks; compared to Sequelize, which is listed in 38 company stacks and 33 developer stacks.

An RDBMS that implements object-oriented features such as user-defined types, inheritance, and polymorphism is called an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS).

MariaDB is designed as a drop-in replacement of MySQL(R) with more features, new storage engines, fewer bugs, and better performance.
    MongoDB
    MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.

    1.It's very popular. Heared about it in Database class 2. The most comprehensive set of advanced features, management tools and technical support to achieve the highest levels of MySQL scalability, security, reliability, and uptime. 3. MySQL is an open-source relational database management system. Its name is a combination of "My", the name of co-founder Michael Widenius's daughter, and "SQL", the abbreviation for Structured Query Language.

    We use MySQL and variants thereof to store the data for our projects such as the community. MySQL being a well established product means that support is available whenever it is required along with an extensive list of support articles all over the web for diagnosing issues. Variants are also used where needed when, for example, better performance is needed.

    MySQL is a freely available open source Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) that uses Structured Query Language (SQL). SQL is the most popular language for adding, accessing and managing content in a database. It is most noted for its quick processing, proven reliability, ease and flexibility of use.

    I am not using this DB for blog posts or data stored on the site. I am using to track IP addresses and fully qualified domain names of attacker machines that either posted spam on my website, pig flooded me, or had more that a certain number of failed SSH attempts.
