Latest MySQL version offers firms more database control

02/11/2013 | Data centers |

If you're looking to make the most of your servers to meet the changing demands of web, mobile and cloud applications, having good database management tools is essential. For many firms, the best option could be a MySQL solution, as this can offer a high level of performance and functionality. In fact, MySQL is the world's most popular open-source database management solution.

Therefore, if you're using these tools, it might be worthwhile looking at the latest build of the software and seeing if its new features can offer you something more. MySQL version 5.6 was announced by owner of the tool Oracle this month, with the company promising better performance and more scalability, reliability and manageability solutions in order to meet the evolving needs of modern data centers.

So why should you be looking at MySQL 5.6 for your database? The software has a wide range of new and improved functionality, including:

• Enhanced linear scalability, which helps users to leverage modern hardware capabilities and make the most of their dedicated servers.
• Simplified query development and faster execution.
• Better transactional throughput and application availability.
• Flexible NoSQL access.
• Improved replication.

All of this means users of MySQL 5.6 should be able to complete operations much faster than in the past and with a higher degree of control, allowing them to get a much tighter grip of their everyday database procedures - something that can take up a significant part of an IT administrator's time and resources.

The solution's Release Candidate has been thoroughly tested by its community of users and the feedback Oracle received has allowed it to refine the technology and offer even more functionality to users.

It was summed up by one senior executive working on the development Tomas Ulin, Oracle's vice-president of MySQL engineering, who said the new build is a "fantastic fit for today's most demanding web, cloud and embedded application requirements".
