Why MySQL Enterprise Edition?

MySQL Enterprise Edition enables your customers to achieve the highest levels of MySQL performance, security and uptime while reducing the risk, cost and complexity to develop, deploy and manage MySQL applications.

Ensure Security
Following a number of high-profile cyber-attacks against top companies such as Apple and Sony, security has become a top priority. MySQL Enterprise Edition offers many features to protect your customers’ databases.

MySQL Enterprise Firewall guards against cyber security threats by providing real-time protection against database specific attacks, such as a SQL injection. The firewall offering monitors for database threats, automatically creates a whitelist of approved SQL statements and blocks unauthorised database activity.

MySQL Enterprise Encryption provides encryption, key generation, digital signatures and other cryptographic features to help organisations protect confidential data and comply with regulatory requirements.

Other security offerings within the MySQL Enterprise Edition include audit, authentication, monitoring, backup and Oracle Premier Support.

Reduce Costs
CIOs and IT management are under constant pressure to cut costs and deliver more with a reduced budget. Therefore improving operational efficiency is key. MySQL Enterprise Edition combats your customers cost reduction challenges through various features.

The MySQL Enterprise Monitor continuously monitors your customers’ databases and alerts them to potential problems before they impact their system. This is like having a “Virtual DBA Assistant” by their side to recommend best practices to avoid downtime and optimise performance. As a result, the productivity of developers, DBAs and System Administrators is improved significantly.

The MySQL Query Analyser enables developers and DBAs to quickly improve the performance of their database applications by monitoring query performance. The offering allows your customers to accurately pinpoint SQL code that is the root cause of a slow-down. Because of this, developers can improve SQL code during active development as well as continuously monitor and tune queries running on production systems.

Other cost reduction offerings within the MySQL Enterprise Edition include backup, high availability, Oracle Premier Support and MySQL consultative Support.

Grow revenues
When the competition is only “one touch away”, delivering very fast and scalable applications it is critical your customers win and retain their customers. In a world where every transaction is an audition for the next, performance and scalability of your customers’ applications is essential for their customers to renew their subscriptions.

The MySQL Enterprise Scalability enables your customers to meet the sustained performance scalability requirements of ever increasing user, query and data loads. MySQL Thread Pool provides an efficient, thread-handling model designed to reduce overhead in managing client connections, and statement execution threads. The MySQL Thread Pool provides up to 60x better scalability.

MySQL Enterprise High Availability enables your customers to make their database infrastructure highly available and help prevent the risk of downtime. Oracle provides you with certified and supported solutions, including MySQL Group Replication, MySQL Router, Oracle Clusterware, Oracle Solaris Clustering and Windows Failover Clustering for MySQL Enterprise Edition.
