MySQL is a database management system. It is one of the most popular relational DBMS (database management systems) in the world and is widely used by both web developers and enterprises. MySQL has a simple and intuitive interface. It supports standard SQL (Structured Query Language) functions that allow you to efficiently work with data, create, modify, and manage databases.

MySQL. Key Features

  • Relational model: It allows you to organize data into tables with specific relationships between them. It provides structured storage of information and the ability to run complex requests to retrieve the data you need.
  • SQL language: MySQL supports the full set of SQL (Structured Query Language) features. You can perform "select, insert, update, and delete" operations with SQL.
  • High performance: MySQL is optimized for multi-threading, allowing the efficient process of simultaneous requests.
  • Stored procedures and triggers: They allow developers to create complex data processing logic directly in the database.
  • Replication and fault tolerance: It allows you to create copies of the database and distribute the load between them. This improves data availability and ensures fault tolerance of the system. Replication also allows you to back up data and secure its safety.
  • Full-Text Search: Built-in support for full-text search makes it easy to search and analysis of text data. This feature of MySQL allows you to perform complex requests based on keywords and phrases, as well as to rank search results.
  • Scalability and support: MySQL can be deployed on multiple servers and integrated with distributed systems.

Getting started after deploying MySQL

A notification will be sent to the e-mail specified during registration that the server is ready for work after paying for the order. It will contain the IP address of the VPS, as well as the login and password for the connection.

Clients of our company manage the hardware in the server`s and API control panel — Invapi.
