Our partners Solid Information Technology have joined our Certified Engine program and will be making available an open source engine that plugs directly into MySQL. Solid brings robust OLTP database expertise and their system has been proven in telecommunications and finance for many years.
Solid is showcasing their new engine for MySQL at the MySQL Users conference booth 510 and will also have a presentation at the conference on the technology. The picture above was from our offices in Cupertino (coincidentally MySQL and Solid are in the same building) when Paola Lubet, VP Marketing from Solid, joined us to celebrate the availability of their new engine.
More information about our certified engine program will be available at www.mysql.com/engines . The beauty of the MySQL pluggable storage engine architecture is the availability of many third party engines from commercial vendors and the open source community.
