Drizzle Moves to Rackspace

Drizzle, an offshoot of the MySQL open-source database, and the former Sun Microsystems employees who worked on it, has moved to Rackspace, a cloud infrastructure provider.

Rackspace believes that cloud computing and infrastructure-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service, and database-as-a-service are the future of technology; and considers Drizzle to be “a database that will provide them an infrastructure piece that will be modular and scalable enough to meet the needs of their very diverse cloud customers.” It also sees promise in integrating Drizzle with the Cassandra storage framework that it is using.
