Oracle Enhances MySQL Manageability on Windows
By Bertrand Mattheli�-Oracle on Sep 06, 2011
Windows is a major development and deployment platform for MySQL. A few months ago, we held our first MySQL Online Forum, dedicated to MySQL on Windows. We outlined then why MySQL was a great fit for the Windows environment, and what were the upcoming milestones to make MySQL even better on the Microsoft platform.
We’re now pleased to announce that two important milestones have been completed:
1. The New MySQL Installer for Windows is GA
The MySQL Installer for Windows radically simplifies the installation process for all MySQL users on the Windows platform. It only takes a few minutes from downloading the MySQL Installer to having a ready to use MySQL system on your machine. It delivers:
- An intuitive graphical interface that guides users through the installation process
- The ability to install all MySQL products that are required at once
- An integrated update system for all MySQL products installed
2. Certification for Windows Failover Clustering
This certification expands the range of High-Availability solutions available for MySQL on Windows, which previously included replication and MySQL Cluster. Users can now power business critical applications with MySQL Enterprise Edition using native Windows clustering services.
Andrew Morgan provided more detailed information in his blog earlier today about the solution and how to get going.
We will be holding a webinar on September 15th at 9.00 am PT to present the two new Windows solutions in more details, Register now!
