Oracle buys Sleepycat
February 14, 2006
After Innobase, Oracle has bought Sleepycat, the maker of the great database engine BerkeleyDB. Congratulations to the Sleepycat team!
As an aside, Oracle now owns the developers of InnoDB and BDB, two of the most popular transactional table formats used by MySQL database.
Shouldn't MySQL AB start to worry about that?
