Check out Maria DB, its the new fork of MySQL and compatible with MySQL
Its not owned by Oracle but its by the MySQL authors

We're familiar with ORACLE, DB2, and SQL Server, but not so much with MySql.
So, we don't have a good feel of how much of an effort it would be to support MySql in Spark.
Coincidentally, we are going to take a look at MySql in the very near future.
However, this is exploratory and therefore I cannot make any promises.
Hope this helps.
