Who uses MySQL? Many well-known companies, including Facebook, Bank of America, United Nations, Caterpillar, F5 Networks, Eli Lilly, and more.

In fact, MySQL is the most trusted and widely used open-source database platform in use today. Ten out of the ten most popular websites in the world rely on MySQL and it continues to gain popularity.

According to an article by InfoWorld, "By any measure, MySQL is one of the most popular database management systems. More enterprises are shifting to MySQL (and other open-source databases) as a database solution in their production environments."

MySQL 8.0 builds on this momentum by delivering improvements to help DBAs and developers create and deploy web, embedded, mobile, and Cloud/SaaS/PaaS/DBaas applications on the latest generation of development frameworks and hardware platforms.
