Advantages of using IoT platform (eg Thingspeak) over Mysql

I am using Thingspeak IOT cloud platform for storing and retriving the real time data. Creating own database through MYSQL is also suggested. Which is better? IOT cloud platform or MYSQL server.

I don't understand the comparison;
From what I visualized in Thingspeak's website, it is an analytics tool with key CSPs. It means it's a product which may or may not contain mySQL or Kafka as backend.

While MySQL is database. You can do numerous things with it.

@pushpa monisha - It'd be nice if you could clarify what you wish to achieve and describe the problem a bit in more detail. 

IOT Platform is the best in retrieving and store data.

@Raji Tamil - that's a general statement; but I'm not sure what you are suggesting. How does IoT store and retrieve data?
