SINGAPORE, 27 NOVEMBER 2008 - Sun Microsystems has announced a major new version of its MySQL Enterprise subscription service to help corporate users dramatically improve the speed and uptime of their MySQL database applications.
MySQL Enterprise subscribers now have access to Sun's new MySQL Query Analyzer tool for monitoring query performance to accurately pinpoint and correct problem SQL code, in addition to MySQL Enterprise's regular software updates and 24x7 production technical support. Sun Microsystems is a vendor of computers, components, software and IT services.
Thirty-day trial subscriptions for the new MySQL Enterprise service, including MySQL Query Analyzer, are now available for free from www.mysql.com/trials.
"With the MySQL Query Analyzer, we were able to identify and analyse problematic SQL code, and triple our database performance," said Keith Souhrada, software development engineer for Big Fish Games. "More importantly, we were able to accomplish this in three days, rather than taking weeks." Big Fish Games is a leading online destination for games and interactive entertainment.
"The new MySQL Query Analyzer is a turbo boost for MySQL applications," said Marten Mickos, senior vice president, database group, Sun Microsystems. "It allows DBAs and developers to identify, within minutes, database queries that could be run faster and more efficiently. They can then pro-actively tune their code before it causes any slowdown that could negatively impact their business."
The MySQL Enterprise Fall 2008 Release will be commercially available within a month.
Pricing for MySQL Enterprise ranges from S$1,000 (US$661) to S$8,348 (before GST) per server per year, and is also available through an unlimited site-wide agreement, starting at S$86,002 (before GST) per year.
