Oracle has acquired Innobase Oy for an undisclosed sum of money!

Innobase is the company that provide the InnoDB storage engine in MySQL. InnoDB feature include high concurrency, row-level locking, transactions and etc in MySQL. InnoDB come with dual licence, if you violate the GPL licence you would want to pay for the licence other wise it’s free.

Since Innobase has been acquired by Oracle, i’m thinking :-

  1. how’s the next release of MySQL would be. Will the InnoDB still be bundle together with MySQL?
  2. What action company need to take in order to maintain their current system which running MySQL?
  3. Will this affect the MySQL market share in the market?
  4. What’s MySQL next move?
