My application is running on MySQL 5.1.58 community edition. I tried to search enterprise edition of MySQL 5.1.X but only MySQL 5.6.X version of enterprise edition is available.
Is it possible to download MySQL 5.1.x enterprise edition - trial version? I want to compare the performance testing with the community edition of MySQL 5.1.X

    If I'm not mistaken, the only difference between enterprise and community edition is, that the first includes support while the other doesn't. – tombom Mar 26 '14 at 10:07
  • From where can I download the MySQL 5.1 enterprise edition? – ursitesion Mar 26 '14 at 10:34
  • See this thread - Aleksandr Kuzminsky says they're the same. As has been pointed out, what you get with EE is support and various add-ons, but the core server is the same. Try 5.6 and see if that addresses your perfomance issues. What are they? – Vérace Jun 30 '14 at 9:58

I don't think you can get a MySQL Enterprise edition for v5.1.X version.

You can see the diffrence in performance between Community and Enterprise version here:


You can also download Enterprise product guide whitepaper to know more details.

In summary additional features in MySQL Enterprise version are MySQL Thread Pool, MySQL Enterprise audit and a Technical support for your server related issues.
