Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"At the O'Reilly-sponsored open source conference last August,
MySQL developer Monty Widenius announced a new project called
MaxSQL-an enhanced version of the popular MySQL database server.
Most significantly, MaxSQL incorporates the latest Berkeley DB
library from Sleepycat Software (www.sleepycat.com), so the program
supports transactions with an additional table type."
"... MaxSQL offers an excellent alternative to high-priced
commercial systems. Most systems don't need to handle the high
transaction volumes that warrant an Oracle installation. And with
the addition of transaction-safe tables, it should handle database
updates with even less programming effort."
