MySQL is the world's most famous open source database server and is on par with other database servers such as Microsoft or Oracle (which have huge licence costs).

MySQL is a relational database management system that runs as a server providing multi-user access to a number of databases. Free-software-open source projects that require a full-featured database management system often use MySQL. Applications which use MySQL databases include: Joomla, WordPress, MyBB, phpBB and Drupal. MySQL is also used in Wikipedia and Facebook.


  • Open source – no licensing needed.
  • Fast data processing – consistent fast performance, high reliability and ease of use.
  • Cross platforms – MySQL can run on multiple platforms.
