"“We are one of the largest MySQL web sites in production. MySQL has been a revolution for young entrepreneurs.”"

"MySQL is the key component of Verizon Wireless’ mission-critical employee portal application. We achieved 1400% performance improvement by moving from the MyISAM storage engine to InnoDB, upgrading to the latest GA release MySQL 5.5, and using the MySQL Thread Pool to support high concurrent user connections."

"Using MySQL with partitioning, we took our product from a maximum of 3,500 records per second to 22,000 records per second for a 6x performance gain. We’re now at 10x performance from pre-partitioning levels and still haven’t reached the max simply because we haven’t had enough test machines."
