| growth strategy and capital allocation model, and it is expected to 
| contribute to the achievement of the company's objective for

MySQL in the firing line again as IBM snaps up SolidDB

,----[ Quote ]
| The aqcuisition also has implications for MySQL given Solid’s development of 
| the SolidDB for MySQL engine, an optional replacement for InnoDB (also of 
| course acquired by Oracle).  
| 
| [...]
| 
| Solid had planned to boost its support for MySQL in the new year following 
| the release of MySQL 5.1. It will be interesting to see if IBM sticks to 
| those plans, but given IBM’s support for multiple databases used against its 
| hardware and software stack, it would not be at all surprising if it does.  
| Let’s not forget that DB2 can also be used as a storage engine for MySQL on 
| System i following the agreement struck between the two companies in April.

First it was nasty Oracle stealing pieces of MySQL and now /this/? IBM is at
least a friend of MySQL.

Solid: Boosting MySQL for Mission-Critical Users

,----[ Quote ]
| MySQL is poised to attract keen attention from F1000s running 
| mission-critical apps. A meaner, faster version of MySQL, dubbed solidDB 
| for MySQL, is now in general availability (GA). Co-built by MySQL AB and 
| Solid Information Technology, it cuts response times, boosts scalability, 
| and processed 2x more transactions than Oracle InnoDB, say benchmarks.

InnoDB vs MyISAM vs Falcon benchmarks - part 1

,----[ Quote ]
| Several days ago MySQL AB made new storage engine Falcon available
| for wide auditory. We cannot miss this event and executed several
| benchmarks to see how Falcon performs in comparison to InnoDB and MyISAM.
|
| [...]
|
| Method of benchmark:
| 1. Prepare table with 1,000,000 records (about 350Mb of data on disk)
| 2. Run each query for 1, 4, 16, 64, 128, 256 concurrent threads.
| 3. For each thread perform a warm-up run (duration 180 sec), and then
| run three effective runs (duration of each is 60 sec).
| As the final result we get a maximal result of three runs
