There are plenty of better open source tools to store data than MySQL.

You need the full power of a RDBMS including referential integrity,
triggers and stored procedures? Use PostgreSQL or Firebird.

You are looking for a simple yet extremely power persistent layer that
supports even transactions, MVCC and networking? Check out ZODB + ZEO.

You have to store and acces a LOT of data? Hadoop may the solution.
