A Guide to Lower Database TCO: How the Open Source Database MySQL® Reduces Costs by as Much as 90%

There are three key reasons why MySQL is world's most popular open source database:
  1. MySQL is a fast, easy-to-use and reliable database developed and marketed at a fraction of the cost of proprietary software by using an open source approach. These cost savings are passed on directly to the customer.
  2. MySQL has been battle tested in the market place. It has over 11 million active installations and over 60,000 downloads every day.
  3. The MySQL database is supported by MySQL, a second-generation open source company founded in 1995. The company is profitable, owns and supports all of its code and offers MySQL Enterprise, a comprehensive set of software and proactive services that saves enterprise developers and DBAs time and effort.
In this white paper, you'll learn how organizations such as Sabre Holdings, Cox Communications, and NASA have improved database reliability, performance and TCO using MySQL. You'll also see how these techniques can apply in your organization.
