MySQL alternatives from MySQL

Monty Widenius, after the selling of MySQL AB to SUN started a company “Monty Program Ab”, and released a new MySQL engine: MariaDB (following his tradition of naming his programing childs after his biological ones)

One of the pourposes of MariaDB is t0 counteract the side effects of InnoDB being under the control of ORACLE, and provide a “crash-safe alternative to MyISAM” and for Maria2.0 “A fully transactional storage engine with at least all of InnoDB’s major features.”

Also there is an GPL2 alternative to InnoDB: percona-xtradb (from an independent company)

“Percona XtraDB is an enhanced version of the InnoDB storage engine, designed to better scale on modern hardware, and including a variety of other features useful in high performance environments. It is fully backwards compatible, and so can be used as a drop-in replacement for standard InnoDB.”
