While containers can be great ephemeral vessels for your applications, your data needs to be able to survive containers coming and going, maintain its availability and reliability, and grow when you need it. Join our upcoming webinar to learn how to build your own MariaDB container.
We’re releasing MariaDB Server 10.2.5, which is Release Candidate number 2. Although this is a Release Candidate, there is one significant new piece in it, namely MyRocks. MyRocks is a storage engine developed by Facebook using RocksDB as the backend.
MariaDB Server 10.2 introduces Common Table Expressions (CTEs) that allows recursive SQL, that replaces the CONNECT BY syntax of older database systems. Here, we take a look at CTEs, how they relate to CONNECT BY and what these can be used for.

We are very excited to sponsor MariaDB’s inaugural user conference, M|17! It’s a great opportunity to introduce Webyog to the MariaDB community, and demonstrate the close collaboration between Webyog and MariaDB – we work together to provide powerful administrative tools for the fastest growing open source database.
MariaDB 10.2.4 has fantastic new features that perfectly match Replication Manager's ultimate goals: transparent automated failover on MariaDB master slave architecture (with as little as possible lost in transaction:)). We are going to explore those new features and how Replication Manager uses them for your benefit!
MariaDB ColumnStore is a massively parallel scale out columnar database. Data loading and modification behaves somewhat differently from how a row based engine works. This article outlines the options available and how these affect performance.
The 2.1 version of MaxScale introduced a new concept of module commands. This blog post takes a look at what they are, why they were implemented and where you see them when you use MaxScale.
Performance has been a central goal of MariaDB MaxScale’s architecture from the start. Core elements in the drive for performance is the use of asynchronous I/O and Linux’ epoll. With a fixed set of worker threads, whose amount is selected to correspond to the number of available cores, each thread should either be working or be idle, but never be waiting for I/O. This should provide good performance that scales well with the number of available CPUs. However, benchmarking revealed that was not entirely the case.
SQLyog is included in MariaDB Enterprise and it helps DBAs, developers and database architects save time writing queries visualized with syntax checking, designing visually complex queries, and many other powerful features for visualization, synchronization and management. This 12.4 release introduces ‘read-only’ connections as well as support for the MariaDB auth_gssapi (Kerberos) plugin.
MariaDB announced BSL 1.0 together with MariaDB MaxScale 2.0 in August 2016. After having the license “in the wild” for a few months we’ve been reaching out to Open Source advocates to get feedback on the BSL.
