Oracle buys Sleepycat open-source database vendor
Oracle has acquired open-source database vendor Sleepycat Software, strengthening its hand in the embedded database market and putting to rest at least one of the rumors about its plans to buy open-source companies.
The acquisition extends Oracle's embedded database product line, which also includes Oracle Lite for mobile devices and TimesTen, which it acquired last year, for high-performance in-memory database applications.
Sleepycat's Berkeley DB is embedded in several well-known open-source products, including the Linux and BSD Unix operating systems, Apache Web server, OpenLDAP directory and OpenOffice productivity suite, Oracle said Tuesday.
The acquisition means customers have access to a fast, open-source database at low cost and with "enterprise-class support," Oracle said.
