It Just Works! The Beauty of MySQL as an Embedded Database

MySQL is an extremely popular embedded database because it does "just work." It works and helps keep COGS (cost of goods sold) low:

  • For small startups and for 7 of the top 10 software vendors
  • In low-margin mass markets and in sophisticated, high-value markets
  • Across product lines in entry-level and enterprise editions
  • In network management applications that handle more than 20,000 write operations per second and in accounting applications used by home-based businesses

This presentation shares why MySQL embedded excels in all of these applications and how MySQL keeps vendors' COGS and their customers' TCO low, initially and over time.
