The two companies will work together to offer the MySQL Server for i5/OS, the flagship operating system for System i, and they plan to deliver IBM DB2 for i5/OS as a certified MySQL storage engine on the System i platform.
This will allow System i customers to implement online and transactional MySQL applications while storing all data in a single, easy-to-manage DB2 database.
In addition, MySQL Enterprise subscriptions - a comprehensive offering of MySQL database software, services and support - will be made available to IBM clients worldwide through IBM's reseller network and System i sales team. Financial terms of the agreement have not been disclosed.
"This deal will make thousands of open source MySQL and PHP applications available to System i clients, helping them respond more quickly to business needs as they arise," said Mark Shearer, general manager for IBM System i.
