Many of the world's largest organizations -- including Yahoo!, Sabre Holdings, The Associated Press, Suzuki and NASA -- are realizing significant cost savings by using MySQL for business-critical enterprise applications and packaged software. MySQL is an attractive alternative to higher-cost, more complex database technology due to its high-performance, reliability and stability. Apple uses MySQL in Mac OS X.
