Thank You from The MySQL Team at Oracle!
Employee_Team +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The MySQL team at Oracle would like to thank everyone who joined us at the MySQL Community Reception last week at the Santa Clara Tech Mart. We couldn't have hoped for better participation - the room was packed; in fact people were overflowing into the outside patio!!!!

"Great conversations, positive spirit and delicious food" is how one person described the event! And let's not forget the vodka...

 

Personally, I was happy to see many members of the MySQL community come together (a special shoutout to ex-MySQLers Marten Mickos and Zach Urlocker!), and have a chance to meet Tomas Ulin (VP MySQL Engineering) and some key members of his team. Afterall, there's a lot to talk about with all

Get The Facts: MySQL Licensing and Pricing

The confusion about whether MySQL Community Edition still included InnoDB seems now to have dissipated. Thank you to Sheeri Cabral, Darren Cassar and all of you who helped correct the misperception created by catchy headlines. In part, the confusion was caused by people assuming that the MySQL Classic Edition (an option for embedding that has been around for a long time) is the same as MySQL Community Edition...not so. We have made appropriate changes to our web page (http://www.mysql.com/products) to clarify this.  [Read more...]

Code modification: the open source database straw man
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

It is interesting to read RedmondDeveloper News’s take on Oracle’s attitude to open source this morning, especially this paragraph quoting Monica Kumar, Oracle’s senior director for Linux and open source product marketing:

“”We haven’t seen our customers asking for open source databases,” she told me. “Not many customers are interested in looking into the code and mucking around with it, and making changes to it. All they care about is ‘give me the best support, give me the lowest price of entry’.” For that Kumar pointed to Oracle Express.”

It is difficult to disagree with the second part of Monica’s statement. Cost savings are routinely cited as the biggest driver for open source database adoption, while the lack of robust support is
