What is MySQL database?

A database is a structured collection of data. It may be anything from a simple shopping list to a picture gallery or the vast amounts of information in a corporate network. To add, access, and process data stored in a computer database, you need a database management system such as MySQL Server. Since computers are very good at handling large amounts of data, database management systems play a central role in computing, as standalone utilities, or as parts of other applications.

MySQL is a relational database management system (RDBMS) based on SQL (Structured Query Language). First released in January, 1998, MySQL is now one component of parent company MySQL AB's product line of database servers and development tools. It is used in a wide range of applications, including data warehousing, e-commerce, Web databases, logging applications and distributed applications. Now, it become the world's most popular open source database because of its fast performance, high reliability, ease of use, and dramatic cost savings.
