History MariaDB

MariaDB is a relational database management system (RDBMS). It arose as an open-source fork of MySQL and is mostly compatible with MySQL. It is written in C, C++, and Perl and is made available under the GPL’s conditions.

Compatibility MySQL

Currently, MariaDB is one of the most popular relational database systems. Whereas application compatibility with MySQL® remains warranted, it adds new possibilities to face the challenges within web- and company applications.

Improvement to MySQL

The newest version can be downloaded for free from (Linux and Windows), directly installed from a Linux repository (e.g. Red Hat, Fedora, Suse, and Debian) or hosted on Cloud Services (e.g. Amazon AWS). MariaDB is a drop-in replacement for every version of MySQL. This means everything will continue working like it did with MySQL. PHP connectors keep connecting to the ‘new, improved MySQL’. Possibilities concerning performance, storage engine, and scalability are much better, compared to MySQL.

NoSQL combination

MariaDB has released an ‘enterprise’ version of its database, which combines the popular NoSQL architecture with the trusted, robust SQL configuration. MariaDB has integrated these two types of databases, meaning their own database is collaborating with the Apache Cassandra NoSQL database. By adding the Cassandra Storage Engine, columns from Cassandra now appear as tables in MariaDB. It is possible to put data in these tables and re-select the data right after. Additionally, it is possible to combine data from Cassandra with data which is stored in MariaDB.

This provides a solution to the (too) long existing gap between the two types of data storage. MariaDB delivers this new functionality with its new versions MariaDB 10 Enterprise and Enterprise Cluster. Both versions are based on MySQL. On top of that, MariaDB is much faster than previous versions, because of, among other things, the possibility of parallel replication.
