Is it possible to run the same version of MySQL on two servers, but use MySQL Community on one and MySQL Enterprise on the other?

+0

I have two servers with identical hardware for running MySQL one is the development environment and the other is production. Currently, we are considering upgrading from MySQL Community (free) to MySQL Enterprise ($5,000 per year).

Is it possible to upgrade only the production server to MySQL Enterprise and keep the same version of MySQL (8.xx) as is on the development server which will still be running MySQL Community?

I don't see why it would be a problem. What about your usage, or intended usage, makes you think it might be? Canina‭ 11 days ago

@Canina the whole point of the current system is to keep the environments identical for testing or at the very least as close as we can make it. Also need to make sure that we won't spend $5,000 only to find out that we will need to spend another $5,000 Charlie Brumbaugh‭ 11 days ago

Do you need to push from one to the other, or are they independent (but you're trying to keep functionality the same)? Monica Cellio‭ 11 days ago

@MonicalCellio they don't need to automatically push to each other, just need to have the same software/hardware/mostly same data Charlie Brumbaugh‭ 10 days ago

Yes, you can do this.

Remember that Oracle will eventually ask every person in the company "How many MySQL servers do you have?"

Also remember that Oracle make make changes in their enterprise versions to make them incompatible with the open versions.
