Summary: MySQL: A very fast and reliable SQL database engine
MySQL is a true multi-user, multi-threaded SQL (Structured Query
Language) database server. MySQL is a client/server implementation
that consists of a server daemon (mysqld) and many different client

The main goals of MySQL are speed, robustness and ease of use.  MySQL
was originally developed because we needed a SQL server that could
handle very big databases with magnitude higher speed than what any
database vendor could offer to us. And since we did not need all the
features that made their server slow we made our own. We have now been
using MySQL since 1996 in a environment with more than 40 databases,
10,000 tables, of which more than 500 have more than 7 million
rows. This is about 200G of data.

The base upon which MySQL is built is a set of routines that have been
used in a highly demanding production environment for many
years. While MySQL is still in development, it already offers a rich
and highly useful function set.

This version allows to use transactions with BDB tables and extended
character set support. See the documentation for more information
