NewsForge: Today, at the MySQL Users' Conference and Expo in Orlando, FL, company CEO Mårten Mickos is announcing a new product: MySQL Cluster. According to an embargoed press release sent to NewsForge Monday, this is "...a new open source database clustering technology for applications requiring continuous availability. MySQL Cluster combines the MySQL database with a clustering architecture to deliver 99.999 percent availability to mission-critical database applications."
GPL-licensed "preview" version is immediately available for free download and free use in open source software products from MySQL.com. A full "production" version is expected this Fall, available either under GPL for open source developers or as a commercial product for commercial developers with a price tag the company says will not exceed $5,000 per processor.
