myCampus leverages MySQL for its Database. The MySQL database server is the world's most widely used open source database. Its ingenious software architecture makes it extremely fast and easy to customize. Extensive reuse of code within the software and a minimalistic approach to produce functionally rich features have resulted in a database management system unmatched in speed, compactness, stability and ease of deployment. The unique separation of the core server from the table handler makes it possible to run MySQL under strict transaction control or with ultrafast transactionless disk access, whichever is most appropriate for the situation.
