FloorWizard Enhances its Data Management Capabilities with the MySQL Open Source Database
January 15, 2010
The MySQL® database has become the world's most popular open source database because of its consistent fast performance, high reliability and ease of use. It's used on every continent -- Yes, even Antarctica! -- by individual Web developers as well as many of the world's largest and fastest-growing organizations to save time and money powering their high-volume Web sites, business-critical systems and packaged software -- including industry leaders such as Yahoo!, Alcatel-Lucent, Google, Nokia, YouTube, and Zappos.com.
Not only is MySQL the world's most popular open source database, it's also become the database of choice for a new generation of applications built on the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP / Perl / Python.) MySQL runs on more than 20 platforms including Linux, Windows, OS/X, HP-UX, AIX, Netware, giving FloorWizard the kind of flexibility that it needs far into the future.
Since converting to the MySQL database, FloorWizard developers have implemented numerous modifications that have resulted in a faster, more powerful system for our users. With the move to MySQL complete, the world’s only estimation system backed by a central database is faster than ever!
