During comparisons, BINARY values are compared exactly byte for byte. This differs from the CHAR data type, where values are
compared using the collation sequence of the database. If one binary string is a prefix of the other, the shorter string is
considered to be less than the longer string.
Unlike CHAR values, BINARY values are not transformed during character set conversion.
BINARY is semantically equivalent to VARBINARY. It is a variable-length type. In other database management systems, BINARY
is a fixed-length type.
