What will be first? The new and updated MySQL certification or the new OSS-DB exam which is announced by LPI in Japan?
The OSS-DB is only for PostgreSQL for now, but will cover more opensource databases in the future.
There seem to be two levels:
- Silver: Management consulting engineers who can improve large-scale database
- Gold: Engineers who can design, development, implementation and operation of the database
