This is an open source .. No licensing cost to pay. This itself is big thing even there are not many features like Oracle RAC, But you can manage all that with multiple servers and load balancing features. Provides Gui with Command Prompt. Supports the administration using MySQL Admin,MySQL Query Browser. Latest version supports stored procedures and functions. The best things is runs in windows and Unix/Linux.
