Bloomberg: MySQL and PostgreSQL May Give Enterprise RDBMS Vendors Fits

Bloomberg.com published a story yesterday that said Yahoo! is considering replacing some Oracle database servers with MySQL. The article goes on to talk about MySQL and PostgreSQL, and how they are being used in an increasing number of enterprise applications as their performance and reliability improve. MySQL AB's CEO Marten Mikos compared databases in the market to naval ships: "Some navies need aircraft carriers, but you don't need many aircraft carriers in the world....The rest of the world can manage with frigates."

We are impressed with MySQL and we are working with it now. We hope to deploy some web-based applications based on it within the next few weeks.
