For those who have not realized it yet, yesterday Oracle bought Sleepycat Software, the makers of Berkeley DB. Read the press release here:
I wonder what going to happen to BerkeleyDB…
Previously, on 07 October 2005 Oracle bought InnoBase, the makers of InnoDB. Press release here: http://www.oracle.com/corporate/press/2005_oct/inno.html
InnoDB is a transactional database technology, also included as an option in MySQL as a database type.
As usual, thanks to my Slashdot crazed friend Azidin.
