Disaster relief organizer lauds MySQL, open source

Mark Brunelli writes "The CEO of Capalon explains why he chose open source software to power a call center for victims of hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

From the interview: "MySQL has only continued to improve. For example, master-slave replication has been stable for years now and is very reassuring if a server goes down. It is relatively difficult to find MySQL data corruption that can be attributed to MySQL itself, rather than a failed server or full disk. After the underlying problem is resolved, myisamchk -r has worked consistently.""
