Oracle may offer open source database

 

In this article we see a possible movement by Oracle to introduce an open-source relational database:

 

http://oracle.ittoolbox.com/news/dispnews.asp?i=134984&t=4

 

Many have been concerned that Oracle’s purchase of InnoDB might herald the death of MySQL, but many analysts disagree:

 

“Oracle could also use the acquisition merely to obstruct the open source database movement by taking the InnoDB technology off the market. But Feinberg said that this last scenario is highly unlikely.”

 

The article notes that Oracle may offer-up a “small footprint” open source database, similar to MySQL for small applications.

 

“While such an offering would do little to compete with Oracle's existing database, it could increase the pressure on Oracle competitors such as Microsoft with its SQL Server Express and Sybase with its ASE Express.

 

"This would give Oracle an entry-level relational database management system [DBMS] that would compete in this space with the further advantage of not exposing Oracle's DBMS source code to the open source community," Feinberg wrote in a recently published analysis.”
