In the following GovTransformer podcast, Kathy Forte, a Solutions Architect at Oracle working within the MySQL group, discusses how the Oracle MySQL Cloud Service offering can help government advance mission goals.

In the government arena, open source strategies are beginning to take hold, and for good reason – they help to reduce costs, improve government data sharing, and return value to taxpayers.

This is where the Oracle MySQL Cloud Service offering comes into play. The solution delivers a secure, cost-effective and enterprise-grade MySQL database service. Built on MySQL Enterprise Edition and powered by the Oracle Cloud, it provides a simple, automated, integrated and enterprise ready MySQL cloud service, enabling government agencies to increase business agility and reduce costs.

“The Oracle MySQL Cloud Service is the world’s most popular open source database in the Oracle cloud, which enables you to rapidly securely and effectively develop and deploy modern applications by MySQL,” said Forte in the podcast interview.

From being fully automated and secure to being scalable and offering seamless PaaS and IaaS integration, MySQL is the number one open source database in the Oracle Cloud.
