You should know that MaxDB, which was originally the core DBMS of SAP, is released by MySQL.
Might I ask you that
1. Is MaxDB the best in features and performance amongst all open source DBMS?
2. Can MaxDB challenge the private DBMS, such as Oracle and MS SQL Server?
3. Is it a good time to move to MaxDB in my current projects and my future projects, where a little transaction and high volume of data retrieval are performed?
