InfoWorld: Former BEA executives launch open source company "Part of SourceLabs' initial round of funding came from Index Ventures, an information technology and life sciences venture firm. Danny Rimer, a partner at Index, is also an investor in MySQL AB and Zend Technologies Ltd., two companies that sell the kind of open source software that SourceLabs plans to support. Zend develops and supports the PHP scripting language."
That at least in part explains the praise from MySQL AB's CEO in one of the articles this morning, despite the potential for serious conflict with MySQL's own business model.
BTW whoever is doing PR for SourceLabs gets a gold star this week; they've hit most of the major publications in a sweep today.
