From LAMP to SAMP? January 17, 2008

Posted by Sacha in IT.

LAMPFrom SUN’s MySQL analyst call (seekingalpha.com), Jonathan Schwartz:

By our estimates around 20% or so of the deployments that we see with MySQL run on Solaris but the most important statistic there is there are about 75% of the deployments we see with Solaris don’t occur on Sun hardware. We are interested, and to some extent, you are pointing up the incredible revenue synergies that are at hand here because we can not only bring a breadth of services and technology offerings to the MySQL customer and user base but we can also bring the MySQL customer opportunity to our customer base.

I hope not to become the source of FUD on this as I really don’t see SUN trying to force MySQL customers onto Solaris, that wouldn’t be a smart move. Rather, I just wanted to be one of the first to utter the phrase “SAMP” following the acquisition 😉



P.S.: “SAMP” is the copyright of Thomas Heute 🙂

And what i didn’t know:
“Samp is dried [corn] kernels that have been stamped and chopped until broken” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samp

At the end they will want a large SGMJ (Solaris-Glassfish(Sun AS)-Mysql-Java) customer base but IMO it’s as easy to happen as it is to pronounce.

Viva *J*J (anything-JBoss-anything-Java) hard to pronounce but easy to remember.
