Oracle Scoops Up InnoDB

Oracle Scores Open-Source InnoDB Storage Engine
Oracle on Friday purchased InnoDB, the Finnish open-source database company whose add-on table storage engine for MySQL rivals MySQL’s own MyISAM in popularity.

InnoDB Oy Inc.’s database engine isn’t stand-alone. It is distributed as part of the MySQL database. Moreover, InnoDB’s contractual relationship with MySQL is up for renewal next year.
