With MySQL it's called MaxDB and it's SAP-certified with the SAP application suite, whatever that means.
So if you want to look for references for people using MySQL with the SapDB stuff look for 'MaxDB'.
I don't think that MySQL is realy pushing it though. I've heard that SapDB's code was more then a bit of a mess. Brings to mind the status of Netscape's code base when Mozilla aquired it.
They have that pluggable data storage engine thing that they seem to be focusing on. The idea is that you can more easily select what sort of features you want with MySQL.. Weither you want it to be done with SolidDB (Solid does commercial versions for carrier-grade RDBMS for communications industry and GPL'd their engine with the partnership of MySQL) vs InnoDB vs BDB vs the default MyISAM vs the up and coming 'FALCON' they've developed from their purchase of Jim Starkey's Netfrastructure company. Maybe they will port MaxDB to this. I don't know.
It'll be interesting to see what is going to happen to MySQL in next 3 years or so.
