An anonymous reader writes "The source for the Falcon Storage Engine for MySQL, has been released as open source. Mr. Jim Starkey is behind the creation of this new Storage engine for MYSQL. Mr. Starkey also known as the father of Interbase, has also been previousoly involved with the Firebird SQL database project. Falcon is a completely new storage engine. Falcon looks to be the long awaited open source storage engine that will perhaps become the primary choice for MySQL and along the way offer some innovation and performance improvements over current storage engine alternatives.
