What is a MySQL database?

MySQL is an open source relational database management system (RDBMS), which uses Structured Query Language (SQL), the most well-known language for adding, accessing and processing data in a Database.

Because it is open source, anyone can download MySQL and configure it according to their needs, always in accordance with the general license.

MySQL is known primarily for its speed, reliability, and flexibility. Most agree, however, that it works best when managing content rather than performing transactions. MySQL currently can run on Linux, Unix, and Windows environments.
