Visualforce and MySQL Connectivity for Displaying Data on a Custom Visualforce Page

We are running out of data space and I came up with the idea of migrating old outdated records (Development still needs to have access to these records but not on a daily basis, only occasionally, so I want them deleted out of the system to free up space and preclude. They are backed up on our back and recovery system OwnBackup) via Skyvia to a MySQL database, which would make those records available for access to Development when they need them. Being they are none technical I was thinking I could create a Visualforce page which was connected to the MySQL database and a lookup field to reach out and query that database for records they want to review. Does that sound like a workable idea?
