NetMotion Wireless Migrates Product from Microsoft SQL Server to MySQL: Reduces Costs and Increases Flexibility


NetMotion Wireless develops software to manage and secure wireless data deployments for organizations with mobile field workers. Founded in 2001, NetMotion Wireless is one of the fastest growing wireless and technology companies and the recipient of over 25 awards for outstanding technology.  NetMotion Wireless has over 2,500 customers, including Advocate Healthcare, Comcast, and Unilever.


NetMotion Wireless had used Microsoft SQL Server with Mobility Analytics, their mobile VPN product’s analytics module, but found it was too costly and lacked the platform and language flexibility to be a good [embedded] database. As a result, when the NetMotion Wireless product team was developing Locality, a cellular network management product, they decided to find an alternative database to use with it and with Mobility Analytics. The team compared MySQL with Microsoft SQL Server on a number of key criteria and, after finding nothing in the “con column”, decided to use MySQL.


According to Jonathan Wiggs, NetMotion Wireless database architect, MySQL has been able to meet their products’ needs for:

  • Real-time Data Collection and Analysis – with the ability to scale to hundreds of terabytes.
  • Strong .NET and Java Support“MySQL works every bit as well with ado.net as SQL Server, and its Java integration is equally good,” said Wiggs.
  • Database Profiling and Tracing – MySQL Enterprise Monitor provided back level visibility on par with other enterprise databases, providing the data analytics and caching levels their products require.  
  • Easy, Transparent Administration -“MySQL’s administration is automated, easy to configure, and highly configurable: we can get it to leap through any flaming hoops we need,” said Wiggs.
  • “The Perfect Trifecta” - “There has been no tradeoff in using MySQL.  MySQL has provided the perfect trifecta of feature parity, ease of integration, and lower cost,” said Wiggs.
