Our history

The MariaDB database was born after Oracle acquired MySQL. With the original core MySQL team, we have added functionality to the MariaDB database that competes with legacy database systems like Oracle at a fraction of the cost. We have added columnar analytics, JSON functionality, Oracle compatibility, distributed SQL for massive scalability, and we’ve built a fully managed cloud database service that offers the full breadth of MariaDB database solutions supporting hybrid and multicloud strategies.

Today, the MariaDB database is recognized as a distinct database around the world. MariaDB is the new “M” in the LAMP stack, it’s the default over MySQL in the majority of Linux distributions, it’s replacing Oracle and other legacy databases at increasing rates and it’s available in every cloud. MariaDB is everywhere.
