 Open HA Cluster: MySQL highly available on Solaris

I have been using both Solaris and MySQL for years and I can see how having someone like Sun (who I think does a very good integration job) get MySQL working well with Sun's Clustering software is a Very Good Thing.

Read the interview here: Detlef Ulherr and Thorsten Früauf on Open HA Cluster: Making MySQL highly available on Solaris

"Thorsten: I thought this was a good move, since within my consultancy work it was always obvious that some kind of database is part of a data center project. One of Suns strengths is providing a great infrastructure to run data center applications. Most architectures contain a database, be it Oracle, Sybase, Informix, DB2, PostgreSQL or MySQL - all of them have their strengths and weaknesses again. This is one of the reasons why we have data services for all of those databases in Solaris Cluster and try to be the best high availability platform for them.

By acquiring MySQL, Sun has the chance to offer a complete integrated stack — from the database down to the hardware in a complementary way."
