MySQL founder creates Open Database Alliance

Monty Widenius, the main author of MySQL, has announced he is setting up the Open Database Alliance (ODA) to consolidate work on the open database.

The ODA will consist of a set of companies offering software, support and services for MariaDB, an enterprise-grade, community-developed branch of MySQL. MySQL serices company Percona is the first to join.

“Our goal with the Open Database Alliance is to provide a central clearinghouse for MySQL development, to encourage a true open development environment with community participation, and to ensure that MySQL code remains extremely high quality,” said Widenius.
