[From Pogo Linux, Inc.]

(San Francisco, CA - August 4, 2003) -- Pogo Linux Inc., a Linux hardware vendor, and MySQL AB, developer of the world's most popular open source database, today launched the first MySQL® database appliance, the DataWare 2600 Server. The DataWare 2600 is a pre-configured, fully integrated hardware/software offering optimized for speed and value. The jointly developed database appliance is a turnkey solution that combines the Linux systems expertise of Pogo Linux with the cost savings, reliability and performance of MySQL's open source database. Pogo Linux, the first "MySQL Certified Hardware Partner," will demonstrate the DataWare 2600 at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in San Francisco, August 5-7, in booth #1259.

The DataWare 2600 is exclusively designed by Pogo Linux engineers and optimized by MySQL AB's database developers. It provides 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 alternatives.
