I've gotten incredibly excited about Sun products that greatly expand the capability of MySQL. What's been great is the excitement is coming from customers. If you are using MySQL you really need to take a look about how these Sun products are leveraging MySQL in customer environments. The powerful features and cost savings are very significant so every customer should be looking at how they can benefit from these products.
