An extension of Hewlett-Packard’s existing open source support initiatives will provide services to support customers using MySQL database software.

HP (HPQ) and MySQL announced at the MySQL Users Conference that the support agreement will see HP offer MySQL support directly beginning in May, and through its channel partners starting in June.

MySQL will train HP Services personnel on the product line to prepare them for the consulting, integration, and support they will provide. HP plans to include MySQL in its Open Source Integrated Portfolio.

“HP is the only IT service provider that can serve as a single point of accountability for customers seeking to integrate and manage MySQL database software in an IT environment,” said HP’s Dan Socci, vice president, worldwide marketing and sales.

HP plans to include MySQL in its Open Source Middleware Stacks. The company announced those earlier in April, as part of the Open Source Integrated Portfolio; the Stacks include hardware platforms, Red Hat or SuSE Linux distributions, middleware like MySQL, JBoss, and BEA, and various management tools and other software.

MySQL Network will be the component delivered by MySQL and supported by HP.

This subscription service includes the MySQL software, updates/upgrades, tech support, and other assistance for database administrators and developers.

“For businesses, it means easier software integration, leveraging HP’s vast global support network, and ultimately lowering overall IT costs,” said Marten Mickos, CEO of MySQL AB.
