Oracle loses Dr. DBA

 

Oracle database expert, Ken Jacobs, resigned last week, apparently miffed that he did not win ownership of Oracle’s new MySQL franchise

 Jacobs, often known as Dr. DBA, had hoped to head up the open-sourcey MySQL effort after Oracle completed its acquisition of Sun MIcrosystems. Instead, Edward Screven, Oracle’s chief corporate architect, takes on MySQL. Screven reports directly to Oracle CEO Larry Ellison and was front and center last week on Oracle’s conference call discussing the future of Sun and Oracle’s virtualization products and MySQL.  

Jacobs was vice president of product strategy for Oracle’s server products and had been with the company since 1981.
