How reliable is MySQL database for heavy traffic websites?

Is MySQL reliable for a heavy traffic website?

I have a website that is running MS SQL but we are really thinking about changing it to MySQL. The only concern is how it will handle our heavy traffic (20k simultaneous users on peak hours, and 300 milion pageviews/month).

Also hosting will be first class, several dedicated servers, CDN, and so on. But the main concern is the database. Any hints?
