Editor Note

Spring 2006

*Editor note - There are many great database programs and solutions on the open source market as well as the commercial market. These editorials are to shed some light on the two most stable open source databases: MySQL and PostgreSQL. Both of these databases perform well and either can be used in a mission critical application. These editorials are just the opinions of the IMs that wrote them and are not endorsed by NSF or the LTER. I hope in forthcoming issues that someone will discuss the commercial products as well.
