After Oracle's acquisition of Sun Microsystems, Inc., FairWarning wanted to better understand Oracle's plans for MySQL's future. In a meeting with Oracle MySQL, the questions FairWarning had had about MySQL were answered: "MySQL's product roadmap fully addresses our needs. We like the fact that MySQL Enterprise Edition has everything included; there's no need to purchase separate modules. We've had a lot of good customer support." said Chris Arnold, FairWarning's Vice President of Product Management & Engineering.

High Performance – In order to manage the huge networks of Global 2000 companies, NetQoS needed to architect a solution that could collect and analyze 100+ GB of data every hour. Using a combination of distributed MySQL databases for real-time data and an array of MySQL database appliances for historical data, NetQoS is able to collect many gigabytes of data for real-time troubleshooting as well as detailed performance records for historical analysis up to 13 months. For NetQoS customers, this means identifying and solving tactical problems faster, before they impact productivity. It also means having the right information available for strategic planning.

An AVST solution can process and record 50k new calls and 15k messages each day, adding 65,000 new records daily, or approximately 24 million records / year to its MySQL database. As messaging solutions, AVST products need to be able to search and find records in real-time. AVST solutions have been able do that with MySQL, even with large and constantly growing data volumes.

According to John Moss, CEO of S2, “We had three primary considerations in selecting a database to embed in our system: cost, footprint, and functionality. The main reason we chose open source and MySQL was cost. We’re delivering an embedded product and needed a well-featured and reliable, yet low-cost database to be competitive.

The database had to be easy to use, with zero administration for mid-sized businesses that can't afford to manage another database in their enterprise, but also scalable and sophisticated enough meet the demands of the largest enterprises and service providers, with up to hundreds of thousands of end-users.

To address this need, RTTS created QuerySurge, the only testing tool built specifically to automate the testing of data warehouses and the ETL process. With the help of MySQL, QuerySurge ensures that the data extracted from sources remains intact by analyzing and pinpointing any differences in the data (down to a single character) between each leg of the ETL process. QuerySurge automates data warehouse test design, management, scheduling, execution, analysis and reporting. QuerySurge testing is up to 100 times faster than manual testing, and vastly more comprehensive, with the ability to test up to 100% of the data. In addition, QuerySurge is able to do all of this without any effect on data warehouse performance beyond running the test queries.
