InnoDB & MySQL wrt Oracle model version

Posted: 4th November 2010 by Darren Cassar in Uncategorized

After this mornings twitteriffic panic where people thought Oracle had removed innodb from the mysql community version, its better to clear some things out.

As a friend explained, mysql and innodb are free as in free speech and free beer (the dream). Hence Oracle model version is only talking about ENTERPRISE versions of mysql NOT the popular COMMUNITY version. All of you who used to go to to get your mysql + innodb fix still can do so for FREE.

Oracle have changed their products page, but haven’t deemed important to explain the changes to the MySQL community. Oversight or intentional, the news that innodb won’t come with MySQL for free anymore with the community version is NOT TRUE.

Because Sharing is Caring
