"OpenSourceCRM.org today announced that its outbound email subsystem, KeyFactor, now supports hosting its datamart on MySQL. The MySQL database is especially popular among users of the open source Linux operating system."

"We are completely satisfied with the MySQL port of KeyFactor," said Jay Joiner, OpenSourceCRM developer. "We believe that it is important to interoperate with all databases commonly used in the OpenSource community. MySQL easily handles complex queries without suffering any performance penalty. This is attributed to the extremely fast overall execution speed of MySQL. KeyFactor with MySQL is a great combination!"

"The OpenSourceCRM initiative is an ambitious project that VA Linux is happy to support," said Steve Westmoreland, Chief Information Officer of VA Linux, Inc. "As an early user of SourceForge we have seen the effort make remarkable progress. With KeyFactor, users of MySQL now have an open source alternative for marketing automation."
