MySQL in April will ship MySQL Cluster, a high-availability version of its open source database for deployment across clusters of systems.
The clustering package features the MySQL database coupled with a storage engine originally developed by Ericsson for telcommunications applications. The engine was acquired by MySQL in November.
The combined product enables clustering of the MySQL database across various hardware and software platforms, including the Linux, Windows, and Solaris operating platforms and Intel and Sparc hardware. MySQL will ship the package during its MySQL Users Conference & Expo 2004 in Orlando beginning April 14.
"Basically, it means that MySQL starts being used in more applications [and] more business-critical situations, and people who are using it today can now scale out for larger applications," said Zack Urlocker, vice president of marketing at MySQL.
