The world's most popular open source database

MySQL is currently the #1 Open Source and #2 most popular database worldwide. It is increasingly being used for mission-critical work; however, optimising performance and value can be challenging.

Database is a cost-effective solution for:

MySQL Database features

 Native HA to ensure that your database is always available.

MySQL Enterprise Edition builds on the above feature set by providing a set of commercial extensions around the MySQL Database that meet the advanced security, performance, scale and availability requirements of the most demanding applications, web and online environments.

These extended features are exclusive to MySQL Enterprise Edition and are detailed below.

Our MySQL Services

MySQL Migrations

At HGK, we provide specialized MySQL migration services.


Whether you are migrating to MySQL Standard Edition, MySQL Enterprise Edition, or MySQL Cloud, we provide data management migrations, consulting, and support.


Our experienced team understand how to identify and overcome obstacles that can arise from poorly planned migrations.


MySQL Healthcheck

Our experts can provide regular health checks or one-time solutions to prevent and fix issues before they become problems, ensuring peak performance for your organization.


In order to comply with GDPR regulations, it is important to be aware of Community Edition's limitations and we would normally recommend a review of your MySQL to ensure compliance. Upgrading to Enterprise Edition may be necessary, and our consultants can assist with every aspect of the transition if required.
