MySQL

MySQL

MySQL is a multithreaded, multi-user SQL database management system (DBMS) which is reported to have more than 11 million installations. The basic program runs as a server providing multiuser access to a number of databases.

The MySQL database server can handle deeply embedded applications with a footprint of only 1MB to running massive data warehouses holding terabytes of information.

MySQL offers a powerful transactional database engine. Features include complete ACID (atomic, consistent, isolated, durable) transaction support, unlimited row-level locking, distributed transaction capability, and multi-version transaction support where readers never block writers and vice-versa. Full data integrity is also assured through server-enforced referential integrity, specialized transaction isolation levels, and instant deadlock detection.

MySQL is a popular database backend for web sites as it has a high-performance query engine, fast data insert capability, and strong support for specialized web functions like fast full text searches.

MySQL was awarded Application of the Year by YouTube, Amp'd Mobile and Adobe.
