MySQL is the world's most popular open source database software, with over 100 million copies of its software downloaded or distributed throughout
its history. With its superior speed, reliability, and ease of use, MySQL has become the preferred choice for Web, Web 2.0, SaaS, ISV,
Telecom companies and forward-thinking corporate IT Managers because it eliminates the major problems associated with downtime, maintenance and
administration for modern, online applications.|
Many of the world's largest and fastest-growing organizations use MySQL to save time and money powering their high-volume Web sites, critical
business systems, and packaged software - including industry leaders such as Yahoo!, Alcatel-Lucent, Google, Nokia, YouTube, Wikipedia, Booking.com...and now Touge!
The flagship MySQL offering is MySQL Enterprise, a comprehensive set of production-tested software, proactive monitoring tools, and premium support
services available in an affordable annual subscription.
MySQL is a key part of LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP / Perl / Python), the fast-growing open source enterprise software stack. More and more
companies are using LAMP as an alternative to expensive proprietary software stacks because of its lower cost and freedom from platform lock-in.
The MySQL database is owned, developed and supported by Sun Microsystems, one of the world's largest contributors to open source software.
The shopping cart software that runs Touge has been heavily customised to allow total control over content, design, database expansion and backend functions to make your
shopping experience as simple as possible.
We felt that EVERY shopping cart solution "out of the box" was too "rigid" for our needs so in 2007 we started developing our own from CCP framework. We now have a secure shopping cart
system that we have made our own.
