MySQL Enterprise Powers the Øresund Bridge – Processes Daily Traffic Data from 30,000 Vehicles

The Øresund sound is the strait that separates Denmark from Sweden. The total length of the bridge is 15.9 kilometers (52,493 feet), and about 30,000 vehicles cross the combined two-track rail and four-lane road bridge-tunnel on a daily basis. It is the longest combined road and rail bridge in Europe and connects the two metropolitan areas of the Øresund Region: the Danish capital of Copenhagen and the Swedish city of Malmö.

In order to support and monitor the daily traffic data and transactions from 30,000 vehicles, the Øresund Bridge purchased a MySQL EnterpriseTM Platinum subscription from Sun Microsystems.
