Lower Your Database TCO on Windows by up to 96%

If you are a Windows user concerned about the new licensing and pricing of SQL Server 2012, we encourage you to try the MySQL TCO Calculator!

You’ll discover how you can reduce your database TCO by up to 96% with MySQL Enterprise Edition vs SQL Server 2012 Enterprise Edition*.

While MySQL is famously known as the "M" of the popular LAMP stack, Microsoft Windows consistently ranks as the #1 development platform for MySQL users in our surveys. Indeed, MySQL on Windows enables you to:

  • Achieve Huge Database TCO Savings, while relying on World-Class 24/7 technical support from Oracle.
  • Quickly Deploy New Applications, leveraging a database reknown for its ease of use and performance.
  • Save Time with the MySQL Visual Management Tools, enabling you for example to be up and running in only 3 minutes!

Oracle Enhances MySQL Manageability on Windows

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

Mike Zinner published an article presenting the then beta installer last April, and you can now download it here.

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!
