Yet another Update on MySQL


The Ex-MySQL boss has sent a letter to the EU, iterating his believe that Oracle should be allowed to buy sun. I find this comment especially interesting:”MySQL is used to power large-scale Web sites with many servers, a role for which Oracle’s back-end database software isn’t suited, he argued. It’s therefore in Oracle’s interest to boost the MySQL business, Mickos said.” I think most of the Oracle Sales people would beg to differ. He might even get a call from Larry Ellison. IBM and others will jump on this assessment. T

he funny part here is that they – Larry Ellison and he – argue in opposite directions.

CEO of Oracle: “We need MySQL to compete with Microsoft in the SMB market”

Ex-CEO MySQL: Oracle needs MySQL to run large scale Internet sites.

Funny how things fall into place once in a while or not ….
