Red Hat and MySQL join forces

By Derek Sooman on
MySQL has announced that it will join forces with Linux software company Red Hat in order to better provide solutions for high-demand server database applications.

"We need to respond quickly to new market demands. If suddenly we get more traffic, more load, we need to respond quickly to that need. Itís open source that will help get there, due to its transparency and modularity. That's why everybody's interested in using open source for very serious business applications." - MySQL AB CEO Marten Mickos.

Working together to provide products to serve website and data warehousing applications, the companies will be working as partners where once they were seen as rivals. Red Hat and MySQL will provide joint technical support to customers using MySQL on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
