Marko Mäkelä, the first full-time employee at Innobase Oy in 2003 explains why he recently joined MariaDB Corporation.
This is a follow-up blog post that expands on the subject of highly available cluster, discussed in MariaDB MaxScale High Availability: Active-Standby Cluster.
MariaDB Replication Manager is a tool that manages MariaDB 10 clusters. It supports both interactive and automated failover of the master server.
High availability is one of the most important aspects of running a business. Whether it is a simple app for a small group of users or a large service used by millions, downtime costs a lot of money and ruins everyone’s day. No matter how hard we try, downtime is inevitable.
I am happy to see MariaDB Corporation announcing a major new version of MariaDB MaxScale. MaxScale 2.0 Beta is now available here.
Relational databases store data in rows because a typical SQL query looks for multiple fields within a record. For example, if you ask for name, zip code and email address of all your customers in New York, the result is presented in rows, with each row containing several fields from a single record. Row structures are also well optimized to handle a lot of inserts and updates.

Remember when the LAMP stack was young? Open source Linux, Apache HTTPd, MySQL, and PHP were the insurgent technologies delivering world-beating performance and scale at unheard-of prices, back in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Now, the LAMP stack has evolved and matured. It remains the core of high-performance, scale-out application architectures, and has been for well over a decade now.
As we start the beginning of our FY15, I want to thank all our customers, partners, staff, and community members for their contributions this past year. I'm proud of what we collectively achieved even as we drove significant changes in our business and organization. It's energizing to feel the momentum and enthusiasm building around MariaDB.
