The Drizzle project is building a database optimized for Cloud and Net applications. It is being designed for massive concurrency on modern multi-cpu/core architecture. The code is originally derived from MySQL.

The project is focused on making a database that is:
1) Reliable
2) Fast and scalable on modern architecture
3) Simple design for ease of installation and management
