What is MySQL
Where can I get more information?

  • What is MySQL?
    MySQL is a true multi-user, multi-threaded SQL (Structured Query Language) database server.  SQL is the most popular database language in the world.  MySQL is a client/server implementation that consists of a server daemon mysqld and many different client programs and libraries.  The main goals of MySQL are speed, robustness and ease of use.  MySQL was originally developed because we at TcX needed a SQL server that could handle very large databases an order of magnitude faster than what any database vendor could offer to us.  We have now been using MySQL since 1996 in an environment with more than 40 databases containing 10,000 tables, of which more than 500 have more than 7 million rows.  This is about 100 gigabytes of mission-critical data.  The base upon which MySQL is built is a set of routines that have been used in a highly demanding production environment for many years.  While MySQL is still in development, it already offers a rich and highly useful function set.  The official way to pronounce MySQL is "My Ess Que Ell" (Not MY-SEQUEL).
