Oracle in the recent news illustrated its beta version of its fast and smooth MySQL open source database and strongly insisted that even in the future will invest its resources. According to the recently held annual conference on MySQL, Oracle’s chief corporate leader and architect of MySQL, Edward Screven said that the beta release of MySQL Cluster 7.1, workbench 5.2 including MySQL 5.5, MySQL Enterprise Monitor 2.2 upgrades will exhibit the commitment of the company to this open source database. However, some thought that this could largely affect Oracle’s monopoly in the market of database.

According to Screven, the MySQL 5.5 version utilizes the InnoDB as one of its default storage engines and also offers an improved performance exceeding about 200% which is 10 times much more efficient in its recovery times. Also, features such as partitioning and the semi-synch replication will be included within the 5.5 version. Screven also guaranteed that Oracle soon will continue to maintain the architecture of the pluggable storage engine of mySQL server. He also stated that the company will keep on to using the same code for all enterprise editions and other related communities. Oracle has ultimately bought mySQL by indirectly purchasing Sun. This mega union was accomplished in the month of January.

In the interview, he also stated that the company holds most of the LAMP stacks, unbreakable Linux, Glassfish, Apache, etc. much prior to Sun. Oracle used Java, Apache and also offered great plugins for the Eclipse platform. Screven stated that Oracle’s virtualization is mainly established on Xen and highlighted that MySQL is a real nice complement to the open source database system due to its crisp performance, easy-to-install and use features. He also stated one of the reasons why the company had purchased the stack of M in LAMP. However, it is now known that the database system, MySQL will still hold a place in the world of Oracle.
