Oracle has stopped offering the cheapest subscription levels for the MySQL database that it picked up when it bought Sun Microsystems.

According to Oracle's latest price list, the low-cost $600 annual fee that Sun had offered to small companies is now no more. Subscriptions now start at $2,000 per annum.

The company has also started offering high-end 'carrier-grade' subscriptions, starting at $10,000 per annum for 1-4-socket servers.

Fears have been expressed for the future of the open-source MySQL since database specialist Oracle announced it was to buy Sun last year.
