Databases Introduction

SpinUp Databases provide you with a fast, reliable, and robust database management system (DBMS) for your application based on MySQL®.

MySQL is a fast, powerful, and open-source DBMS that has been around for nearly 25 years. A DBMS is a system that manages databases and connects them to your applications. MySQL is very popular for small to medium websites, although many of the largest Fortune 1000 companies use it extensively.

MySQL is fairly vendor-neutral and has a very large community around it.

Typically, MySQL is used for web applications that need backend storage, such as WordPress®, MediaWiki®, or other applications geared towards using a Linux®, Apache® MySQL, PHP (LAMP) stack.
