BEA, Oracle, MySQL, Sun Microsystems….oh, my!

So, two big news items happened this week.  Oracle is buying BEA Systems and Sun Microsystems will buy MySQL.  So, Larry Ellison gets his wish (Was there any doubt?).  The good news is that BEA makes some mean middleware that will only strengthen Oracle’s offerings.


And, yowza!  The free, open source database used by Facebook, Google dozens of companies (including some Fortune 1000 and Global 100 companies IS being bought by Sun. 

It’s only January.  Can’t wait to see what else will happen in the next 11 months.


So, here’s the scuttlebutt in the media on both deals:


Specifically, Oracle – BEA: CRN; CNN Money; Investor’s Business Daily

Specifically, Sun – MySQL: ComputerWorld; PC World
