What MySQL is?

Many computer programs, including web-based programs like blogs, photo galleries, and content management systems need to store and retrieve data. For example, blog software needs to store the posts (ie, articles) you write and retrieve them when a visitor goes to your site. Similarly, photo galleries store information about their pictures (for example, for sites that allow users to rate the photos, the numerical rating for each picture is stored in a database). Instead of reinventing the wheel and implementing their own system of storing and retrieving data.

What MySQL Do?

To make it easy for other programs to access data through them, many database software support a computer language called "SQL" (often pronounced as "sequel"). SQL was specially designed for such a purpose. Programs that want the database software to handle the low-level work of managing data simply use that language to send it instructions.


There are many databases that support the use of SQL to access their data, among them MySQL. In other words, MySQL is just the brand of one database software, one of many. These database is very popular among programs that run on websites (probably because they are free), which is why you often see it being advertised in the feature lists of web hosts, as well as being listed as one of the "system requirements" for certain web software (like blogs and content management systems).

Key Features

  • A broad subset of ANSI SQL 99, as well as extensions.
  • Cross-platform support.
  • Stored procedures, using a procedural language that closely adheres to SQL/PSM.
  • Triggers, Cursors and Updatable views.
  • Online DDL when using the InnoDB Storage Engine.
  • Information schema.
  • Performance Schema that collects and aggregates statistics about server execution and query performance for monitoring purposes.
  • A set of SQL Mode options to control runtime behavior, including a strict mode to better adhere to SQL standards.
  • X/Open XA distributed transaction processing (DTP) support; two phase commit as part of this, using the default InnoDB storage engine.
  • Transactions with savepoints when using the default InnoDB Storage Engine. The NDB Cluster Storage Engine also supports transactions.
  • ACID compliance when using InnoDB and NDB Cluster Storage Engines.
  • SSL support and Query caching.
  • Sub-SELECTs (i.e. nested SELECTs).
  • Built-in replication support (i.e., master-master replication and master-slave replication) with one master per slave, many slaves per master. Multi-master replication is provided in MySQL Cluster, and multi-master support can be added to unclustered configurations using Galera Cluster.
  • Full-text indexing and searching.
  • Embedded database library and Unicode support.
  • Partitioned tables with pruning of partitions in optimiser
  • Shared-nothing clustering through MySQL Cluster.
  • Multiple storage engines, allowing one to choose the one that is most effective for each table in the application.
  • Native storage engines InnoDB, MyISAM, Merge, Memory (heap), Federated, Archive, CSV, Blackhole, NDB Cluster.
  • Commit grouping, gathering multiple transactions from multiple connections together to increase the number of commits per second.
