Oracle VP: MySQL Cluster Not a Threat

Oracle VP: MySQL Cluster Not a Threat "That type of high-end database technology, offered at no cost under the free software/open-source GNU General Public License (GPL) for open-source projects and also under a commercial license for software vendors and other commercial MySQL customers, must be causing some consternation in the hallways of Oracle Corp., IBM and Microsoft Corp., the thinking goes.

Interesting read -- I sense some denial, however...
