  • 1. Competitive UpdateCopyright 2007 MySQL AB The World’s Most Popular Open Source Database 1
  • 2. Agenda • MySQL vs. Commercial RDBMS • MySQL vs. Commercial “Express” RDBMS • MySQL vs. Open Source RDBMS • Specific ProductsCopyright 2007 MySQL AB The World’s Most Popular Open Source Database 2
  • 3. Key Points Commercial Databases Situation Recommendation Competitors are Expensive Focus on TCO Competitors Have More Features Focus on Simplicity not Features Migrations are Difficult Focus on New Applications “Express” Databases Situation Recommendation Products are Restricted Focus on Bait-n-Switch Open Source Databases Situation Recommendation Projects not Companies Focus on MySQL BackingCopyright 2007 MySQL AB The World’s Most Popular Open Source Database 3
  • 4. MySQL vs. Commercial RDBMS Why MySQL wins: • Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) • Performance, Quality, Ease-of-use, Low Administration • Multiple Platforms • Momentum , Market share & Flexibility of LAMP stack! Questions to raise about competitor: • What is the Pricing Model: “Per Server” or “Per CPU” or “Per Core”? • Do you pay extra for Maintenance, Updates and Upgrades? • Do you pay extra for Support? • Does the database have restrictions by CPU, Memory, Storage? • Does the database have restrictions by Platforms? • Point them to the TCO CalculatorCopyright 2007 MySQL AB The World’s Most Popular Open Source Database 4
  • 5. Oracle Weaknesses • 3-year TCO is many times that of MySQL • Complex Pricing Model • Complex software • Difficult to deploy, tune and manage Migration Case Studies • Aizawa Securities, CitySearch, Evite, Enercon, Lycos Europe, NASA, The Weather Channel, H+M, T-Systems “Oracle sales staff has inappropriately imposed extra licensing fees on some database customers by making them choose the option that costs the most…trying to pre-sell far more licenses than the customer will ever use…(and) performing bottom-up audits and occasionally coming back with increases in licensing costs.” (Gartner Group)Copyright 2007 MySQL AB The World’s Most Popular Open Source Database 5
  • 6. Microsoft SQL Server Weaknesses • 3-year TCO is many times that of MySQL • Windows-only agenda Migration Case Studies • Sony International (Europe)Copyright 2007 MySQL AB The World’s Most Popular Open Source Database 6
  • 7. IBM DB2 Weaknesses • 3-year TCO is many times that of MySQL • 12 different code-bases using same brand • Complexity requires expensive IBM Global Services Migration Case Studies • Omaha Steaks AMR Research reported that respondants gave MySQL significantly higher ratings than IBM DB2 on performance, stability, and ease of administration. “Two things account for these high ratings: First, Open Source DBs optimize on performance and stability, while being inexpensive and not burdened with the kinds of complexity that make other databases difficult to adminster.”Copyright 2007 MySQL AB The World’s Most Popular Open Source Database 7
  • 8. Sybase Weaknesses • 3-year TCO is many times that of MySQL • In decline (currently 2.2% market share) • Does not win strategic database decisions Migration Case Studies • CNET • Securities America During the eWeek benchmark, MySQL was able to scale to twice as many users and three times the throughput of Sybase’s flagship database.

  • 9. Informix Weaknesses • 3-year TCO is many times that of MySQL • IBM has “retired” Informix • Informix users are actively migrating to other databases Migration Case Studies • Associated Press • Pottawattamie County We rate IBM/Informix U2, XPS, the other DB products as a strong negative, because these products have reached the end of their competitiveness. Enterprises looking to deploy new applications should consider other DBMSs as appropriate. (Gartner: IBM Informix’s Twilight Years)Copyright 2007 MySQL AB The World’s Most Popular Open Source Database 9
  • 10. MySQL vs. Commercial “Express” RDBMS Why MySQL wins: • No restrictions! No limitations! No Bait & Switch! • Performance, Quality, Ease-of-use • Multiple Platforms • Momentum, Market share and Flexibilty of LAMP stack! Questions to raise about competitor: • Bait-n-Switch! What happens when your needs grow? • Does the database have restrictions by CPU, Memory, Storage? • Does the database have restrictions by Platforms?Copyright 2007 MySQL AB The World’s Most Popular Open Source Database 10
  • 11. ‘Express’ Products - Restrictions • Restricted to Single Machine • Restricted by # of CPUs • Restricted by Amount of RAM • Restricted by Database Size • Restricted by Replication (Scale-out) • Restricted by Web (Hosted) deployment • Restricted by Lack of Technical Support offeringsCopyright 2007 MySQL AB The World’s Most Popular Open Source Database 11
  • 12. Express Products - Impact • NOT allowed to scale-up or scale-out their applications – Due to the Deployment and Technical Restrictions • NOT allowed to deploy high-performance hardware – Required to provide a positive user experience. • NOT allowed to deploy databases larger than 4-5 GB – Limiting the potential of the application • NOT allowed to deploy Data Warehouse applications – Due to the DB Size limitation • NOT allowed to scale beyond a certain number of users – Due to the RAM/CPU/Disk limitations • NOT allowed to take advantage of parallel operations – Such as parallel queries, loading, and partition scans due to the single CPU limitation. • NOT allowed to receive Production-level Technical or Consultative Support – Required to deploy business or mission-critical applications. • NOT allowed to choose an operating system – That reduces costs and increases reliability and performance.Copyright 2007 MySQL AB The World’s Most Popular Open Source Database 12
  • 13. MySQL vs. Open Source RDBMS Why MySQL wins: • MySQL is a full-Service Commercial ISV – Delivers 24x7 Production Support, Maintenance, Bug-Fixes – Delivers Consulting, Training – Delivers IP Indemnification and Warranties (owns all IP) • ISV Partner Program • Global 1000 customer references Questions to raise about competitor: • Who provides 24x7 Production Support? • Who provides Emergency Bug-Fixes? • Who manages the Product Roadmap? • Who owns the IP?Copyright 2007 MySQL AB The World’s Most Popular Open Source Database 13
  • 14. PostgreSQL Customer References • No major reference customers Technical Weaknesses • No pluggable Storage Engines (one-size-fits-all) Business Weaknesses • Who provides 24x7 Production Support? • Who provides Bug Fixes? Migration Case Studies • Cox Communications (PostgreSQL move failed) Until the PostgreSQL project can drop names such as Embarcadero, GoldenGate, HP, Novell, Quest, SAP and Veritas—as can MySQL, with whom those big players partner—it will continue to be known only to the open-source elite. (eWeek)Copyright 2007 MySQL AB The World’s Most Popular Open Source Database 14
  • 15. Commercial ISVs: OSS RDBMS • EnterpriseDB – Focused on Enterprise Applications – Positioning: “Oracle Migrations” and “Oracle Compatibility” – Major VC Funding – Closed Source product on PostgreSQL • GreenPlum – Focused on DW/BI – Major VC Funding – Making “DW Appliance” partnerships – Closed Source product on PostgreSQL (BizGres.org) • Ingres – Executive Team is Ex-Oracle, CFO is Wall Street Analyst – Dual License (Commercial and GPL) – Making “Database Appliance” partnerships – Spin-out from Computer AssociatesCopyright 2007 MySQL AB The World’s Most Popular Open Source Database 15
