    You can download MySQL Enterprise Edition at and try it free for 30 days. This is the full enterprise edition, there are no 'time bombs' to make it stop, and you are free to test it.

    The enterprise edition comes with several outstanding tools such as Enterprise Monitor, Enterprise Backup, at rest encryption, data masking, the database firewall, and more. And you get that phone call for support when you buy.

    Simply install the binaries and you are ready to go.
