The best tool for working with databases

In complex web development, working with databases is indispensable. For convenient and high-quality work with them, you need a Database Management System (DBMS), with which you can create a database and manage it - delete data, add it, update it, etc. The absolute favorite among such programs is MySQL, about the functions and capabilities of which we will tell you about.

What is this program

MySQL is an open source Database Management System well known for its performance, ease of use, and reliability. This is the most common choice for relational database web applications. Thousands of web applications currently rely on MySQL, including SaaS applications running on cloud servers.

Main features of the program

MySQL is capable of providing the user with the following options:

  • interfaces for C, C++, Eiffel, Java, Perl, PHP, Python and Tcl;

  • the ability to work on many different platforms;

  • many column types: signed or unsigned integers of length 1, 2, 3, 4 and 8 bytes, FLOAT, DOUBLE, CHAR, VARCHAR, TEXT, BLOB, DATE, TIME, DATETIME, TIMESTAMP, YEAR, SET and ENUM;

  • very fast table joins;

  • full support of operators and functions in the SELECT and WHERE parts of the query;

  • SQL functions are implemented through a well-optimized class library and run at a high speed;

  • privileges and a password system that is very flexible and secure, and allows verification based on the hostname;

  • very fast B-tree disk tables with index compression;

  • fixed and variable length records;

  • fast and secure memory management system;

  • support for huge amounts of data.

In fact, these are just the most basic features - their full list is much longer. Such a long list of benefits has provided the program with love and reverence among web developers.

Reliability

MySQL runs very reliably without requiring widespread troubleshooting due to bottlenecks or other slowdowns. It also includes a number of performance-enhancing mechanisms such as index support, load utilities, and memory caches. MySQL uses InnoDB as its storage subsystem, which provides very efficient ACID-compliant transactional capabilities that guarantee high performance and scalability. To handle a rapidly growing database, the MySQL Replication and MySQL Cluster subsystems help to scale it.
