Migrating to MySQL Enterprise Edition

Scroll down


To some, it may come as a surprise that some of the world’s largest companies (Adobe, Google and Facebook) use MySQL Enterprise Edition (EE) as their database of choice to run mission-critical applications. However contrary to popular belief, MySQL Enterprise Edition can deliver better performance, security and scalability than some of the top proprietary database providers.  In addition to this, MySQL Enterprise Edition is a low cost option in delivering DR, HA and database monitoring – all of which come included in the yearly subscription.

One of the biggest surprises our customers find when it comes to MySQL Enterprise Edition is the low cost of licensing. Going direct to MySQL price per database is $5,000 or approx. £3,776 per year. As an Oracle Platinum partner DSP can negotiate better pricing on your behalf.

Our MySQL Migration services are delivered through a team of highly qualified UK based consultants.

As database experts we can migrate your data from most database types, typically these consist of the following scenarios:

  • MySQL Community Edition to MySQL Enterprise Edition
  • SQL Server to MySQL Enterprise Edition
  • PostgreSQL to MySQL Enterprise Edition
  • MongoDB to MySQL Enterprise Edition

If you are migrating from MySQL Community Edition, we can help in additional areas:

  • MySQL Discovery – search your network for all deployed MySQL databases
  • GDPR + MySQL Compliance – consult on best practice implementation
    • Discover personal data
    • Scan Security Configurations
    • Implement best practice Privilege Analysis


Apart from reduced costs, MySQL Enterprise Edition Security Architecture is a key driver behind all migrations. The following diagram helps visualise EE capabilities at a very top level.
