Hi Uzi Klein,

I would suggest to go with Innodb first especially as you're already
using MyISAM. In most cases migration to Innodb is seamless - you just
configure MySQL to use this table type and run ALTER TABLE to convert
table format.  

This way you will still be able to use almost all data types functions
etc which MyISAM has. 

MySQL/Innodb also has much larger user base compared to MaxDB.
