Pogo Linux and MySQL AB Announce Partnership to Deliver First MySQL Database Appliance

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From MySQL AB]

PORTLAND, ORE. - (July 7, 2003) - Two open source companies, Pogo Linux Inc., a Linux hardware vendor, and MySQL AB, developer of the world's most popular open source database, announced today a partnership to build the first MySQL. database appliance, a pre-configured, fully-integrated hardware/software offering optimized for speed and value. The jointly developed database appliance, the DataWare 2600 Server, will be a turnkey solution that leverages the cost savings, reliability and performance of MySQL's leading open source database. Both companies are previewing the system at the O'Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON) on July 9-10, in Portland, Oregon.

Pogo Linux is the first vendor to be named a "MySQL Certified Hardware Partner." As a result of this alliance, MySQL AB and Pogo Linux will cooperate to develop and optimize the Pogo Linux appliance to run the MySQL database for maximum performance and ease of use.

The DataWare 2600 will provide IT managers and developers an open source option for developing systems where throughput and performance are critical, such as for Web-hosting and at financial institutions. Because it is based on open source technologies, it will be available at a dramatically lower cost than proprietary database server appliances. The DataWare 2600 will arrive pre-configured so customers can get the box up and running in a fraction of the time it would take if they had to load and configure all the software themselves.
