What is MySQL and how will it benefit my business?
SQL, ‘Structured Query Language’, is a special-purpose programming language used to communicate with data held within a relational database management system, most commonly MySQL or Microsoft SQL Server.
MySQL is one of the leading and most widely used open source databases. Free to download, its popularity continues to increase due to its ability to deliver high performance and highly scalable database applications. Indeed, many of the world's fastest growing organisations such as Google, Facebook and Adobe rely on MySQL to power their high volume websites, web applications and business critical applications.
