A Queensland-based provider of services around MySQL, MariaDB and related services has been bought by Catalyst IT Australia.

Open Query was founded by Arjen Lentz, a member of the Australian free and open source community, nearly 11 years ago.

MySQL is now a part of Oracle after the company acquired Sun Microsystems in 2010. MariaDB is a fork of MySQL and is run by Monty Widenius, one of the original quartet who created MySQL.

Catalyst is a company that was started in New Zealand in 1997 and is an experienced open source integrator.

The company offers support and custom development for Drupal, SilverStripe CMS, Moodle, Samba and other software, as also fully managed hosting on AWS and other platforms.

Lentz said: “Catalyst’s core values are very much aligned with those of Open Query, which is why we are particularly pleased with this outcome.”

Catalyst has offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
