MySQL founder Monty Widenius and Percona CEO Peter Zaitsev announced the launch of the Open Database Alliance – “a collection of companies working together to provide the software, support and services for MariaDB, an enterprise-grade, community-developed branch of MySQL.”
Continuent and Open Query quickly announced their membership, while Monty later clarified that the Alliance will also “include companies and people working on all other open source database”. In a Q&A with Redmonk’s Stephen O’Grady, Monty also noted that he would not be surprised the Alliance had more than 10 companies by the end of the month.
