Jack Clark for TheRegister quoting Google senior systems engineer, Jeremy Cole’s talk at XLDB:
“Were running primarily on [MySQL] 5.1 which is a little outdated, and so
we’re moving to MariaDB 10.0 at the moment,”
I’m wondering how much of this decision is technical and how much is political. While Jack Clark’s points to the previous “disagreements” between Google and Oracle, when I say political decisions I mean more than this: access to the various bits of the code (e.g. tests, security issues), control over the future of the product, etc.
