well Oracle Database is the flagship product of Oracle Inc. It is famous because it is the most widely used enterprise database application, meaning major companies of the world run their applications with oracle as the database.

MySQL has had a very different growth trajectory, it was (and still is) an open source application having been developed by the open source community hence it was not favored by major enterprises for their data but that was the exact reason why it is so popular on the internet.
