Oracle rolls out new MySQL Enterprise release

Upgrade includes new monitoring tools and database software

Oracle this week announced the latest release of MySQL Enterprise, an upgrade of the popular open-source relational database. This is the first major upgrade of the product since Oracle bought Sun Microsystems, the parent company of MySQL, last year in a $7.4 billion deal.

The new release includes production support, monitoring tools and MySQL database software, Oracle representatives said.

Included in the new release is MySQL Enterprise Monitor 2.2, a component that integrates with MySQL Support and provides enhanced query performance monitoring and improved security, Oracle said. It also helps organizations manage MySQL servers and identify problems before they become outages, the company said.

MySQL Enterprise Monitor 2.2 detects problem queries through Query Analyzer Execution Notices, notifying database administrators so that they can find and fix performance problems. It also offers GUI-based tools that monitor the MySQL database and integrates with existing Lightweight Directory Access Protocol authentication, the company said.

Database administrators and developers “need solutions that help them manage their MySQL servers efficiently and allow them to identify performance issues before they become expensive, time-consuming problems,” said Tomas Ulin, director of MySQL Development for Oracle. “My SQL Enterprise Spring 2010 Release offers powerful tools for query performance monitoring, improved security and an enhanced administration experience — all of which help alleviate many common pain points [database administrators] and developers face when building, maintaining and scaling Web applications.”
