Online fashion retailer, Net-A-Porter has expanded its use of the open source database, MySQL, to improve searching on its website.

Net-A-Porter had been using the free Community Edition of MySQL for a number of years, and has now standardised on MySQL Enterprise Edition with a Gold subscription. This commercial database package features production-tested software, proactive monitoring tools, and premium support services.

The company has upgraded from the free version to the Enterprise edition, which offers a service level agreement, support and monitoring tools.

Along with MySQL, the site uses Red Hat Enterprise 4 running on PC-based servers.

MySQL is used by a growing number of larger businesses including Lloyds TSB, Reuters, Google and Airbus.
