Getting dirty with open source databases

“We have been forced to look elsewhere because it’s not economical. If I want to do some serious number-crunching, I’m not going to spend £60,000 for a box when I can get something like MySQL with zero licensing costs and which pretty much does the same thing. It might not be as polished, but the tooling has progressed immeasurably.“

Phi Beta Iota: Microsoft ignored the need for an open source analytic tool-kit, and now Oracle is ignoring the need for an exascale solution that is affordable on the edges. Open source everything engineering is invitable, the only question is how much time and money our legacy mind-sets will waste before getting there.
