MySQL to use SolidDB Storage Engine

By Derek Sooman on April 17, 2006, 6:03 PM
The SolidDB Storage Engine by Solid Information Technology will be used to provision the storage engine for the MySQL database. The MySQL database software can be used with a variety of storage engines, including one called InnoDB, which database firm Oracle purchased. Solid believes that by open-sourcing a portion of Solid's database software, the company will be able to generate revenue from smaller deals.

"The market for open-source databases in mission-critical environments has a big potential," Paola Lubet, vice president of marketing and business development at Solid, said, and added that MySQL provided "a good channel" to reach open-source database customers.
