MySQL Reopens SAP's Database for the Public

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From internetnews.com]

Open-source database software maker MySQL AB has released a new, more powerful complement to its MySQL flagship database.

Called MaxDB version, the latest release, which was built on database assets it acquired from SAP in May, is more robust than MySQL's main product and also boasts such features as stored procedures, triggers and views, which MySQL lacks.

It is also SAP-certified, meaning it is primed to run large mySAP ERP environments and other applications that require maximum enterprise-level database functionality.

Essentially, Sweden's MySQL, which has made its name by offering its database both free under the General Public License (GPL) and as a low-cost alternative to low-end products from Microsoft, (Quote, Chart) Oracle (Quote, Chart) and IBM (Quote, Chart) for commercial license, picked up SAP's DB to better compete with higher octane products from its rivals.
