MySQL Frequently Asked Questions

MySQL is a relational database management system, and the world’s most popular open source database. With its proven performance, reliability and ease-of-use, MySQL has become the leading database choice for web-based applications, used by high profile web properties including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Yahoo! and many more.

MySQL is well known for its exceptional specialization of OLTP (online transaction processing) transactions, and is also commonly used in social networks, ecommerce websites, SaaS (software-as-a-service) applications, and government applications. Most website servers in the world today are run on MySQL.

As an open source technology, MySQL is free to use with no licensing costs. It is commonly known for being the most secure and reliable database management system, along with flexible, on-demand scalability, high performance, high availability, and transactional support ideal for production environments.

It’s best practice to host MySQL through the same cloud service provider you use for your website or application hosting, and setup your master MySQL server in the same region to avoid latency issues between your database and application. Azure is the go-to cloud provider for organizations running on a Microsoft infrastructure, and AWS is commonly used by organizations leveraging Amazon products. Both AWS and Azure are available through ScaleGrid MySQL hosting. Apart from Azure and AWS, you can also host ScaleGrid MySQL on Google Cloud Platform as well as DigitalOcean if you prefer those hosting providers.

Websites and applications providing dynamic content, or collecting information from their users require databases to store, retrieve, and collect their data. In order for this data to be accessible, you have to host your database through a server. MySQL hosting is a great option because it’s a free open source database and can easily be hosted in the cloud on high performing dedicated servers.
