MySQL is an open-source relational database management system developed by MySQL AB and currently owned by Oracle Corporation. It uses SQL to manage and organize data into related tables, supporting high performance, scalability, and robust security features. It is extensively used in web applications, data warehousing, e-commerce, logging, and content management systems like WordPress. Its flexibility and efficiency make it ideal for both small-scale projects and large-scale, data-intensive applications used by major companies like Facebook and YouTube.
