This is your Tech Tidbits Daily for Friday, April 22nd, 2005. Today's podcast contains three items of potential interest all focusing on database technologies.
First is a recent news item from Computer Reseller News that examined the new MySQL v5 that is expected to be released soon. Some key new features include: stored procedures, triggers, and views. Subscription support services will also be available starting at just under $600 per server per year.
Next is that I noticed that Dell is aggressively advertising in many of the tech magazines that they now offer a 5-user pack of Oracle Database 10g Standard Edition One for Windows for $745, or you can get this bundled and installed on a Dell PowerEdge 1850 Server starting at $2949 with a reported savings of $700.
Lastly, an advertising insert called Developer Tools Roadmap publishing in Jan 2005, had a product highlight article on Sleepycat Software's Berkeley DB that focused on the two optimized versions of Berkeley DB for native XML and the other for 100% Java. This tool also has application programming interfaces for C, C++, Perl, Python, and TCL. And it can also run customized platforms utilizing Linux, BSD Unix, VXWorks, and QNX.
