Hi Kenneth,

MySQL is a very high performance database especially when it comes to retrieving and inserting large volumes of data.

MySQL allows you to use "non transaction safe" high-performance storage engines like MyISAM to store table data. MyISAM outperforms Oracle, since it does not involve transaction processing overhead.

Do you need transacton support for your application?

Also what does "300 datapoints for 12 datafields" mean in terms of database columns and rows? It does not seem to be a large volume of data.

Best regards, Dmitry Tolpeko
