MySQL is a relational database management system (RDBMS) that enables storage, searching, sorting and retrieving data. The MySQL server allows multiple users to use data at the same time and speeds up credible access to data. So MySQL is a multi-user, multi-threaded server. Although the history of MySQL dates back to Year 2, its public release has begun since Year 2. This database management system is the most common open source database.
Early versions of MySQL cannot be compared to newer versions of MySQL. Older versions did not have a very user-friendly interface due to the general nature of the operating system they were considering (ie, Unix and Linux), and all of the database design and command prompts were handled via command line commands.
But gradually and with the advent of powerful graphical environments for Linux, MySQL, like other open source software under Linux, has gone through the process of developing and optimizing its kernel and peripherals to become one of the fastest, most efficient and
In addition to the user interface capabilities and peripherals, new versions of MySQL have attempted to permanently fix the major weaknesses of this database engine, namely the lack of three important view elements, stored procedures and triggers, and now MySQL does not blame programmers and database managers for competing with other databases due to the lack of these three important elements.
MySQL’s main competitors are PostgreSQL, SQL Server, and Oracle. Against these competitors, MySQL has the following advantages:
- High performance
- Low cost
- Ease of configuration and learning
- Original code availability
- Proper support services
