In this blogpost we’re going to use the photo-sharing application that has been demoed during MariaDB’s M|17 conference. The sources of the application are available for download on Github. The purpose of this blog post is to demonstrate using a MariaDB database server in your stack when building microservice applications.

On behalf of the eperi team, we are very much looking forward to being part of MariaDB’s first annual M|17 user conference. We see this as a perfect opportunity to introduce our Cloud Data Protection (CDP) solution, the eperi Gateway, to our peers within the MariaDB community.
Join us for one of our full-day roadshows coming to a city near you! MariaDB is hosting educational roadshows across North America to showcase exciting new products and solutions, and share best practices for enabling critical enterprise features such as high availability and security. MariaDB experts will lead content-rich sessions on open source, product features, architecture and security.
Some of the most common questions asked by our users are regarding MariaDB support in Docker, and in particular how it can be used in specific development or production deployments. This series of articles will try to cover a few Docker and MariaDB use cases.
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.
MariaDB’s new analytics engine – MariaDB ColumnStore - has been in the works for some time. What is it and how did it come about? This post outlines our thinking in choosing the engine and features we implemented.
While many are at the ongoing OpenStack Summit in Austin, it came to my attention that the OpenStack project has recently published their latest user survey.
Team MariaDB is touring across several European regions again. The theme for 2016 is "Data Management for Mission Critical Applications". Beside valuable presentations around database security, Big Data analysis and better scalability and high availability our technical experts will help you understand how to take advantage of the wide range of new features and enhancements available now in MariaDB 10.1, MariaDB MaxScale 1.4 and other MariaDB solutions. They will share tips & tricks to help you get the most out of your database.
The MaxScale persistent connection feature has been available since version 1.3.0. It aims to reduce the load on the database servers in specific scenarios. Testing indicates benefits and feedback from live use has been positive.
One of the key issues in 2016 for DBAs to tackle will be Database Security, mainly associated to the increasing adoption of public and private clouds, as well as mission critical applications running on open source databases in large Enterprises.
