MySQL™ Features & Advantages

Cross-Platform Support

MySQL™ is a cross-platform database. Written in C and C++, MySQL™ is available on over 20 platforms including Mac, Windows, Linux, and Unix. It also contains APIs for almost all the popular programming languages.

High Availability

To achieve continuous uptime, MySQL™ provides a range of certified solutions. Such solutions extend from high-speed master/slave replication configurations to cluster servers providing flexible topologies for scale-out and high availability.

Multi-User Access

Concurrent multi-user support is a critical feature in MySQL™. Multiuser databases are accessible from multiple computers simultaneously so that many people can enter and update transactions at the same time.

Open Source

MySQL™ is a free and widely-adopted open-source database. There is a large and global developer community releasing regular patches and continuous updates. Moreover, users can tailor the MySQL™ source code to meet various needs.

ACID Compliance

MySQL™ offers ACID-compliant transactions with components such as InnoDB storage engines. InnoDB supports row-level locking, crash recovery, and multi-version concurrency control, preventing data inconsistency across tables.

Strong Security

MySQL™ offers powerful mechanisms to ensure high security. With host-based verification and password encryption as well as access privilege authentication, MySQL™ makes sure that only authorized users have access to the database.

High Performance

Designed to meet even the most demanding applications while ensuring the optimum speed, MySQL™ facilitates configuring the database with its storage engine framework, including unique memory caches and table index partitioning.

Ease of Use

MySQL™ is rather easy to use with "3 minutes from download to development" installation and configuration. Thanks to many administration tools from the third-party, setting up a MySQL™ deployment becomes easier.
