Many ISVs and OEMs have begun to look for a way to move away from embedding or bundling expensive proprietary databases with their products to a more cost effective database solution. This is especially important for ISVs / OEMs as all of the embedded / bundled database’s associated costs -- licensing, integration, support, maintenance, and administration -- are added to their products’ cost of good sold (COGS), which can negatively impact their profit margins and pricing flexibility. In particular, many ISVs / OEMs are migrating their applications from Microsoft SQL Server because of MySQL Embedded Server’s combination of cost-savings, platform freedom, and feature set.
Of course, a migration from any database is not something to be taken lightly; this being the case, many vendors are educating themselves as to the benefits and true effort/costs of moving to an alternative embedded database management system such as MySQL Embedded Server.
This paper provides insight into what is needed when considering a move from SQL Server to MySQL Embedded Server and presents a number of options that help make the transition easy. Both the business and technical sides of migrating to MySQL will be dealt with, so whether you are a product manager or a senior development engineer with years of database experience, you will find the answers you need in order to successfully migrate to the world’s most popular open source database - MySQL.
