Is “Free” Good Enough for Your MySQL Environment?

Author: Srinivasa Krishna | 4 min read | September 16, 2019

MySQL is free open source software. If you run it using managed MySQL cloud services, you won’t need a database administrator. You can have a completely free MySQL installation, right?

Well, not really.

Watch Srinivasa Krishna, Practice Leader – MySQL Practice at Datavail and Eero Teerikorpi, Founder and CEO at Continuent in an online webinar titled “Is Free Good Enough for Your MySQL Environment?”

When Does MySQL Need Help?

As powerful as it is, MySQL needs some assistance in areas where it is limited.

For example:

  • When a large number of queries per second result in traffic jams and performance issues
  • When users make thousands of updates per second
  • When data center demands overload the single-node construction
  • When the volume of full-text searches requires parallel processing
