"AbriaSoft, a Silicon Valley provider of database solutions, announced today its release of Abria SQL Standard, its first packaged MySQL distribution. AbriaSoft is the first company to integrate MySQL, which was released under a General Public License (GPL) a few weeks ago into its own specialized distribution."

"The Abria SQL Standard distribution features the latest stable release of MySQL, the Apache Web server, PHP4, PERL 5.6 and other integrated components, in a turnkey RPM (RedHat Package Modules) install. Comprehensive tools for managing MySQL and the Apache Web Server are also included in the package. Abria SQL products operate on the RedHat 6.x on Intel, Red Hat 6.2 on Sparc and Yellow Dog Champion 1.2 and on Power PC (PPC) platforms. With the installation of Abria SQL Standard, older versions of MySQL are automatically upgraded to the newer versions."

"One of the biggest features of Abria SQL Standard is the painless and quick installation that takes no more than ten minutes," said Mark Gerow, program manager for AbriaSoft. "The installation program intelligently handles upgrades, downgrades and complex dependency conflicts and issues common with Linux software installations, allowing anyone to benefit from the speed and power of MySQL almost immediately."
