A February 2009 eWeek article, Sun Microsystems Discusses Changes Afoot for MySQL Database, talks about the current status and future plans for the open-source database Sun acquired about a year ago. A recent reorganization has combined the software infrastructure group with the database group at Sun under VP Karen Tegan Padir, who says the new structure aims at delivering "open platforms for Web-oriented architecture, spanning identity, applications servers, databases, and application integration."

The article points out that two million downloads have been recorded for MySQL 5.1 since its recent release and quotes the views of analysts.
