Rackspace Cloud Sites Upgrades To MySQL 5.1

Filed in Product & Development by Tarun Bhatti | May 18, 2012 1:51 pm

Last month, we upgraded Rackspace Cloud Sites[1] to new versions on PHP and .NET[2]. Today, we are excited to announce that Rackspace Cloud Sites now supports MySQL 5.1.  Latest versions of all the software supported by Cloud Sites are available here[3].

The new MySQL upgrade will improve stability, performance and security for Cloud Sites customers.

Key benefits include:

See the latest MySQL documentation[4] for more details.

As of August 31, 2012 MySQL 5.0 will no longer be supported by Cloud Sites, therefore we encourage customers to self-migrate to 5.1.  Please refer to Migrating MySQL 5.0 to 5.1[5] Knowledge article for details on migration

As always, we welcome your feedback on Cloud Sites and your experience with these and other features on our product feedback site[6].
