Your Next Open Source Move
For the second time this month, Unisys has made an open source move that warrants your attention. The company has signed a worldwide distribution agreement with MySQL Inc. to support the open source database. The deal comes three weeks after Unisys signed a similar deal with JBoss, a leading provider of open source middleware.
So, we’re reiterating our advice to VARs. Much like Linux before them, open source applications and middleware are gaining critical mass. You should move up the food chain very quickly to master the entire LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) software stack.
