Mainframes get open source database

By Staff

[From ]

MySQL, the Swedish company that sells the open-source database of the same name, has released a version of its software for IBM's mainframe line.

The MySQL database made its way to IBM's zSeries mainframes via Linux, which now can be run on the high-end machines. The new version of MySQL is now available for download, and MySQL will show the product next week at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in New York.

MySQL for AIX, IBM's version of Unix and a close cousin to Linux, has been available for some time, but not in an official version. Now a supported version is available from MySQL, the company said.

The MySQL database software, commonly used to handle busy Web sites, is employed by Yahoo, Slashdot and Google, among other sites.
