While MySQL does not have a true database engine it does perform well for small deployments. The advantage; its free. The disadvantages would take days to write.

Why use Oracle instead of MySQL?

Most people who select oracle over mysql are doing so for a variety of reasons, not one specific feature. Price is usually the most important factor. MySQL is free, and that's why many people choose to use it. Oracle is time-tested/proven, and that is why many people choose it.However, many corporations purchase volume licenses and so the cost of adding an new database/user to an oracle database is not as much as it would be to start your first implementation.Reasons to use oracle instead of MySQL:1.Oracle has many built in functions such as decode that make some queries easier to build.2. Oracle is a private company, and some people argue this means that they will deliver releases/fix defects/etc more regularly, since they rely on the income to survive.3. Oracle has PL/SQL, a built in language that is very powerful. You can also have java stored procedures, this is much more powerful then what MySQL offers.4. Oracle has support for sequences, MySQL does not.5. Mysql does not support table snapshots6. Oracle can be customized and tuned, much more then MySQL can.7. Oracle provides Hot Backup/Standby facility, Mysql provides this facility only for selected engines.8. Oracle provides Clustering Mechanism, where as MYSql does not.9. Oracle Provides two way replication, Mysql provides only one-way replication.10. Oracle provides DB links to connect to a remote oracle server.
