Oracle announced last week that it intends to offer a free version of its database by the end of 2005. They released a beta version called Oracle Database 10G Express Edition. This is seen as a move by Oracle to start capturing the lower end of the marketplace.

The beta runs on Windows (32-bit) and Linux. The product is initially aimed at developers, software vendors, educators, and students.

The product could also help fend off a potential challenge from MySQL. The company is not a big threat to Oracle today but its software improves with each new release, said Andy Hayler, founder and chief strategist with Kalido, which makes data warehousing and master data management products for Oracle and other databases.

MySQL has recently made upgrades in an effort to make the product more attractive to enterprise level clients.
