MySql an Open Source For Storing Data

MySQL (as of March 2014) the world's second most widely used open-source relational database management system (RDBMS).The MySQL development project has made its source code available under the terms of the GNU General Public License, as well as under a variety of proprietary agreements.

MySQL is a popular choice of database for use in web applications and is a central component of the widely used LAMP open source web application software stack (and other 'AMP' stacks). The LAMP is an acronym for “Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP/Python." Free-software-open source projects that require a full-featured database management system often use MySQL.For commercial use, several paid editions are available and offer additional functionality. Applications which use MySQL databases include TYPO3, MODx, Joomla, WordPress, phpBB, MyBB, Drupal and other software. MySQL is also used in many high-profile, large-scale websites, including Wikipedia, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and YouTube.
