MySQL is the world's most popular open source database software. MySQL has become the preferred choice for Web, Web 2.0, SaaS, ISV, Telecom companies and forward-thinking corporate IT Managers because it eliminates the major problems associated with downtime, maintenance and administration for modern, online applications. Powerful administration features enable users to fine-tune the server to optimize performance for the particular details of an embedded or bundled application. Plus, a pluggable storage engine architecture enables you to mix and match storage engines or just use what you need for an efficient optimized footprint.
Identity Manager supports MySQL as a database resource in development or production deployments. MySQL is only supported as a repository database server in development deployment. See the MySQL documentation athttp://www.mysql.com/doc/ for more details.
