Differences between MySQL standard and MySQL Enterprise Servers

MySQL Enterprise Edition

MySQL Enterprise Edition comes with advanced features, management tools, and technical support that helps users achieve the highest levels of MySQL scalability, security, reliability, and uptime. It reduces the risk, complication, and cost associated with development, deployment, and management of business-critical MySQL applications.

MySQL Database Service is a fully managed database service that helps deploy cloud-native applications using the MySQL, which is considered as the world’s most popular open source database. It is completely developed, managed and supported by the MySQL Team.

MySQL Standard Edition

MySQL standard edition ensures that user delivers high-performance and provides scalability on OLTP applications (Online Transaction Processing). It is easy to use, since it is reliable and gives industrial strength performance.

The standard edition comes with InnoDB, which is the engine used while working with databases. This makes it a fully integrated software, which is transaction safe, and ACID compliant database. ACID refers to Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, and Durability.

Let us understand the difference between MySQL Standard and Enterprise servers:
