Dell dabbles with open-source database test

Dell, not known for a heavy emphasis on programming, has released source code for a project that lets people test their database servers with a simulated DVD store.

The DVD Store Version 2 exercises complicated database features. It can be used to test speed or discover how much work a system can handle before reaching the breaking point, Dell said in its Linux blog.

The software is governed by the General Public License (GPL). It uses the open-source MySQL database, but future versions will be available for database software from Oracle and Microsoft.
