MySQL tips off plans for its LinuxWorld party early, and plans to unveil details about its alliance with Pogo Linux, as well as formally announce its new name for the SAP DB.


Open-source database maker MySQL AB Wednesday said it has inked Linux-oriented deals with Veritas, SGI and others to wrap its software with major products from those companies.

The news comes days before the kick-off of LinuxWorld Conference and Expo 2003 in San Francisco, where Mountain View, Calif.'s Veritas (Quote, Company Info) and SGI (Quote, Company Info) plan to unveil their technology integration, marketing and support for MySQL, along with similar agreements with Computer Associates (Quote, Company Info), Arkeia and Emic Networks.

MySQL, which has been gaining momentum as a low-cost alternative for small database projects and departmental needs, will also detail its recently-announced alliance with appliance maker Pogo Linux and reveal the formal new name of SAP DB, the open source database MySQL acquired from SAP in May.
