MySQL: The Database-of-Choice for Web 2.0 Innovation

The MySQL open source database has become the database-of-choice for the new generation of highly-popular Internet companies pioneering new 'Web 2.0' innovation. Leading Web 2.0 sites such as YouTube, Flickr, Habbo Hotel, Linden Labs, CyWorld, Technorati, Facebook, FeedBurner, Feedster, Wikipedia, Digg, LiveJournal,, SimpleStar, PhotoBucket, 37signals,, Trulia, Neopets, and Zimbra have all selected MySQL to power their explosive growth -- due to the database's speed and ability to easily 'scale-out' on low-cost hardware. The exponential growth of the Simple Star PhotoShow platform demands systems that scale rapidly, dependably and cost-effectively, making MySQL the mission-critical, high-volume systems that uniquely meet their needs. A new whitepaper on the benefits of using MySQL to enable Web 2.0 applications is now available at MySQL will be exhibiting this week at the LinuxWorld Expo, being held here at the Moscone Convention Center, booth #1826.
