Anatoliy Dimitrov gives his take on technical reasons to migrate from MySQL to MariaDB: MariaDB offers several advantages in terms of performance and features.

StopwatchThis plugin logs long running transactions to the server error log when transaction took more than a configurable number of seconds.

This is a continuation of my previous blog, where we will focus on some more advanced features related to Dynamic Columns. For an introduction to Dynamic Columns please refer to my previous blog.

Drupal IconI am back from 2014 Amsterdam Drupalcon where MariaDB Corporation was present as sponsor. It was my first time there and I must say I was really impressed by the amount of people attending the conference (around 2300 people) and the interest that the people showed for MariaDB.

We know that there are millions of MariaDB users out there, and we love to hear stories of how MariaDB is working for them. So to encourage more people to share their story we will be running (what I think to be) a pretty cool contest this month. The only part of this contest that I don't like is that I am not allowed to enter. Well, I guess that I can enter I just am not able to win. And we wanted to keep it simple: You share your MariaDB story via our simple entry form, and get entered to win a Moto360 Smart Watch.

DrupalCon Amsterdam was a great event with a lot of energy! It was good to hear so many Drupal developers have already made the switch to MariaDB including the Drupal Association!

We are happy to announce the winner of the free prize draw for the Bose SoundLink Mini:

Matthew has received his Bose SoundLink Mini and is very happy with the prize!

Installing MariaDB became very easy on the latest CentOS /RHEL Linux version 7. During initial setup MariaDB has a tick in the graphical setup environment which enables MariaDB and replaces MySQL.

For several years, I have hosted a medium sized Invision Power Board (IPB) site. The site has roughly 9,000+ users and 1,000,000+ posts. I work with MariaDB on a daily basis, and often find myself recommending it to customers. It's only appropriate I put my money where my mouth is, so to speak. This blog post has no benchmarks. It is just a very simple to follow set of steps I took to migrate my site from MySQL 5.1 to MariaDB 10 on CentOS 6.5 with very little downtime for the end users.

Thanks to everybody that visited our booth at SUSE Linux Expert day in Warsaw, Poland this week!

We had a great time with SUSE, our Polish training partner Compendium, Polish distributor Veracomp and of course IBM. The event was just a day after the SUSE and MariaDB on IBM Power8 announcement.
