Solid Information Technology, which announced solidDB for MySQL in April, released the results of an open source survey yesterday (press release). Solid polled over 200 IT professionals on topics relating to open source adoption at the recent LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in San Francisco. The survey found that the greatest obstacles to developing and deploying an open source database strategy were reliability and high availability (but not the functional status quo?!). The press release includes some additional findings, which all seem to support Solid’s business model. I’d need to see the survey before making a determination as to whether it favored a point of view. Solid intends to repeat the survey at the upcoming LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in Cologne, Germany.
