Rely on MySQL as your Embedded Database

Written by Diana Gray, Principal Curriculum Product Manager, Oracle University

MySQL is an excellent choice for a low cost embedded database. 

Over 3,000 ISVs, OEMs and VARs choose MySQL for this purpose and benefit from significant cost savings when compared to using a competing database product. MySQL enables the cost-effective delivery of reliable, high-performance and scalable web-based and embedded database applications.

Now you can benefit from targeted training that will cover advanced features, management tools and technical knowledge needed to develop, deploy and manage your MySQL applications.

Experience the following benefits: 

  • Low-cost, with features that ensure costs of goods sold remains low throughout and application's lifecycle.
  • Cross platform flexibility, with support for over 20 platforms. This provides the freedom to ship products on multiple hardware and operating system combinations in more markets.
  • High performance, reliability and scalability to meet the requirements of the most demanding applications, including Telco and Network Management. Includes a full-featured RDBMS to make products more competitive as customers' data needs inevitably increase.
  • Ease-of-use, with fast installation, configuration and integration so developers can focus on application development, reducing costs and time to market.
The MySQL for Developers training course teaches you how to plan, design and implement applications using MySQL. Expert Oracle University instructors teach you through realistic examples, interactive instruction and hands-on exercises.

  • This course teaches you how the "libmysqld" library is effectively a MySQL server in its own right. It is shipped as part of the standard MySQL installation. Developers with C/C++ ability can embed this library easily within their applications. It can do most of what a standard client/server installation can do, with notable exceptions being the lack of replication capability and a limit on the number of simultaneous client connections.

    Insights from an Oracle University Classroom - Oracle Data Integrator: What is a Repository?

    By Brent Dayley, Senior Instructor at Oracle University

    "While teaching Oracle University classes on Oracle Data Integrator, I often instruct my students that it takes roughly one and a half days to understand the setup that we do in ODI Studio in order to start to map data from source to target. I start out by giving them a visual tour of the four navigators: Topology, Security, Designer and Operator."

    Try a New Approach to Learning - Purchase the Oracle Database Learning Stream

    Written by Diana Gray, Principal Curriculum Product Manager, Oracle University

    Training that provides you with continuous learning for the Oracle Database

    Have you ever....

    • ... wanted to learn about a particular topic just in time to complete a task?
    • ... considered listening to an industry expert speak about a recent release, best practice or particular subject for an hour or less, since you don't have time for a deep dive?
    • ... wished you had a resource to refresh your memory about a particular topic after completing a training class? 

    I know that in my line of work, I tend to learn on the fly so I get the most current information.

    With so many new technologies to learn, I often go back and make sure my information is accurate. I utilize a portion of my time to learn about something new.

    Oracle University knows that learning needs vary for different individuals. Sometimes you need a solution that offers a vast array of topics, speakers and subjects to get the latest and greatest information for a particular technology area.

    Oracle Database Learning Streams 

    That's why I’m excited that Oracle University created the Oracle Database Learning Stream to help us stay up-to-date with the world's # 1 database and related topics.
