Oracle Drops InnoDB from MySQL Classical Edition, But Not From Community Edition

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.[1]

What are your thoughts on this story?

Update: Basho, creator of Riak that offers a pluggable storage engine based on InnoDB, ☞ clarifies the status of InnoDB:

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.


  1. 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.  ()
