Sun takes MySQL off the market

Sun paid $1 billion for MySQL, the open-source database company and Microsoft challenger (and partner) that was mulling a public offering.

The deal also gives Sun a bigger engineering presence in Seattle, where MySQL used to have its U.S. headquarters and still employs about 30.

Here’s Sun chief Jonathan Schwartz’s blog announcement, a column I wrote last month that has some background on MySQL and some comments MySQL bosses made about Microsoft.
