MySQL appliance for Linux arrives:

"The product is highly reliable, very fast, and straightforward to use,"
Robert Frances Group's Robinson said. "The company is engaging in a number
of partnerships (Pogo and SAP) both to enhance its own product and to
increase its level of commercial support. Commercial support is critical to
increasing the number of enterprise deployments of MySQL, and the company
and its partners have done an admirable job of addressing this issue.",289142,sid39_gci913719,00.html
