MySQL Database Development
Moving up to a closed source database will cost you
Data is important to your business, but should you have to pay twice just to have an enterprise class database?
When your needs outgrow the power of an end-user database like Access you need to move your data up to an enterprise class platform, but the cost increase can be quite shocking. It generally costs $15,000+ to move to a database by any of the big three (Microsoft, Oracle, IBM) database vendors. This can be quite painful when you are used to the costs of an end-user database (under $400). Not only that, but when you move up to a database server, that $15,000 only covers the cost of your license. You will still need to pay for the custom database development and frequently the dedicated database server hardware and software too. Not to mention hiring a qualified DBA.
MySQL is the world's most popular open source database
MySQL is an open source database (that means that the source code is freely distributed) that offers the power and stability of an enterprise class database without the enterprise class price tag. MySQL is used by some of the biggest names in business around the world(click here for case studies). You can have this database for free, or for a much more reasonable license fee that isn't tied to the number of processors or servers you are going to run.
