I have heard many mentioning that Oracle removed InnoDB from the MySQL classical edition version. Now, I don’t know too much about the various versions and licenses of MySQL — it looks like there are at least 5: enterprise, classical, standard, cluster carrier grade, and community — but InnoDB doesn’t seem to have been dropped from the community edition too. So, I’m not really sure this is such a big deal.
What are your thoughts on this story?
InnoDB is available under the GPL. Innostore, as a derivative work of Embedded InnoDB, is also available under the GPL. Neither Oracle nor Basho can take that away from you.
- If everyone would actually be forced to go back at using MyISAM, that would be a bit more interesting as it would mean MySQL will be less durable and consistent. (↩)
