I’ve been watching some of the news lately from Ingres. While their GPL strategy will inhibit their ISV/OEM adoption (amoung other reasons) they seem to be doing two things very very well:
- Raising capital (through the divesture fund) for a major expansion/run
- Assembling top talent
There has also been murmurs of some new products/strategies, such as a tightly coupled Ingres/Linux that will run on steel or in a VM.
So I ask to those that know… Am I wrong on the future of Ingres?
