MariaDB partner

The partnership with MariaDB enables us to deliver, implement, manage and support a powerful enterprise and cloud MariaDB environment.

About MariaDB

OptimaData is consultancy partner van MariaDBMariaDB is an open source relational database management system (RDBMS). MariaDB Server is one of the most popular open source relational databases. It originated as an open source fork of MySQL. It was created by the original developers of MySQL and is guaranteed to remain open source.

MariaDB is largely compatible with MySQL. MariaDB is written in C, C++ and Perl. This open source engine is 100% compatible and is more “free” than MySQL. All bugs and roadmaps have free access, unlike the Oracle version. In addition, the storage database InnoDB has been replaced with XtraDB and other optimizations; this promises better performance. It is part of most cloud offerings and is the default in most Linux distributions.

Improvement over MySQL

The latest version can be downloaded for free from (Linux and Windows), or installed directly from your Linux repository (e.g., Red Hat, Fedora, Suse and Debian) or hosted on Cloud Services (such as Amazon AWS).

MariaDB is a drop-in replacement for any version of MySQL. That means everything will continue to work as it did with MySQL. PHP connectors will continue to connect flawlessly to the “new, better MySQL.” The possibilities in terms of performance, storage engine and scalability, for example, are much better than with MySQL.

MariaDB Enterprise

MariaDB, has released an “Enterprise” version of its database that combines the popular NoSQL architecture with the familiar, robust SQL configuration. MariaDB has integrated these two types of databases, with its own database working together with the Apache Cassandra NoSQL database. With the addition of the Cassandra Storage Engine, columns (columns) from Cassandra now appear as tables in MariaDB. It is possible to place data in these tables and select the data again. It is also possible to create combinations of data contained in Cassandra and stored in MariaDB.

This is a solution to the gap between the two types of data storage that has existed for far too long. MariaDB is releasing the new functionality with the new version MariaDB 10 Enterprise and Enterprise Cluster. Both variants are based on MySQL. MariaDB is also much faster than previous versions, in part because of the possibility of parallel replication.
