Looking for an open-source database which could support your MySQL system? Aside from Oracle, you now have a new option. Oracle was bought out by Sun Microsystems and was developed into an open-source database. But if you would want to have a new alternative open-source database, well meet SkySQL.

Though not really that new SkySQL could now be used to support your MySQL. It is capable of offering support that is enterprise class and could also provide services for your ecosystem in your MySQL. The SkySQL is currently managed by its CEO, the previous global services vice president of MySQL. Moreover, the new database is also being managed by some of the ex-workers of the MySQL. The database is even approved by the creator itself of MySQL- Michael Widenius, also known as Monty.

According to Monty, it is a good thing that MySQL now has SkySQL to support the talent and improve what MySQL does at its very best. This would also ensure the safety of MySQL and with Oracle supporting its functions and services. Supports and services will continuously have high quality given that SkySQL now exists.

Another rumor going around is that there is a plan of partnership between SkySQL and Monty Program which is handled by Widenius. Advocates are concerned about the possible partnership and Widenius, along with the advocates, even wants to have review on the earlier merger of Oracle and Sun. Widenius’ solution is to file an appeal in the Luxembourg’s European Court of Justice. To mellow down the worries and concerns brought by the advocates, Oracle published series of public pledges clarifying some issues on the Oracle and the purchasing methods and requirements of the Oracle and MySQL. The series ensures that Oracles is not required to be bought if you have already bought MySQL commercial licenses.

Aside from this, another niche of opportunities was opened when SkySQL was released and that is the jobs that are now available in the said company.
