Open source database provider MySQL has strengthened its partnership with Linux software company Red Hat to provide customers with improved solutions for high-demand server database applications.
The pair are combining their products to serve website and data warehousing applications, among others.
Red Hat and MySQL have already started to deliver integrated, collaborative technical support to customers using MySQL on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Both companies' technical support teams have implemented common processes to jointly support and resolve complex customer issues.
MySQL and Red Hat also plan to test the MySQL database with Red Hat's Cluster Suite and Global File System (GFS).
Red Hat GFS allows a cluster of MySQL servers to simultaneously read and write data to a single shared file system on a storage area network.
With Red Hat Cluster Suite and GFS, MySQL customers can get a highly available clustered database solution based on all open source technologies.
