WHAT'S THE MEANING?
MySQL is an open-source relational database management system created by Michael Widenius, David Axmark, and Allan Larsson. It was named after the daughter of Widenius and the abbreviation of Structured Query Language, domain-specific communication tool used in programming and managing data.
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that despite the uptrend of NoSQL databases, the free and open-source MySQL is considered the king of databases? According to Matt Asay of InfoWorld Tech Watch, the arrival of NoSQL in the database market should have kicked MySQL and similar relational database management systems out the door, but a 2017 study by DB Engines showed MySQL ranked second as the most searched for and the most used RDBMS, second only to Oracle, which bought MySQL in 2010. Asay said MySQL does not have the same horizontal scale capabilities of NoSQL or the specialized features that attract enterprises to NoSQL, but MySQL is still preferred over other RDBMS like Apache Cassandra or MongoDB because it is easy to use for the majority of professional database handlers, it is considered as a swiss knife for developers and programmers, and is compatible with software like PHPrunner and VFront. It survived two decades of going toe-to-toe with big companies like IBM, Oracle, DB2, and Microsoft, because it is a free, familiar and powerful RDBMS.
