A few years back, along with some folks at MySQL and in the open source community, we helped kick off a campaign against software patents in Europe. This was a hot topic and surprisingly, it seemed no large companies were willing to step up the fight.

SkySQL today announced that it has signed a merger agreement with Monty Program Ab, creators of the fastest growing open source database technology: MariaDB. This merger reunites key members of the original MySQL AB developer and services teams. Their aim is to develop MariaDB into a truly interoperable, NewSQL open source database in collaboration with its customers, partners and the community. The company also pledges to further evolve its offering for users of the MySQL database.
We were delighted last week to find out that we’d been named one of the ‘2013 Top 100 Europe’ winning companies by the Red Herring editorial team. Congratulations to all companies involved!
Join us next Friday in Santa Clara for a free day of learning and fun from the SkySQL & MariaDB gang & their partners
