FAQ

Enterprise Benefits

What makes MariaDB Enterprise Server well-suited for enterprise workloads?

MariaDB Enterprise Server is enhanced, hardened, and secured. Enterprise features include:

  • MariaDB Enterprise Audit with enhanced options to control the audited users, objects, and events

  • MariaDB Enterprise Backup for optimized handling of locks to reduce blocking of writes while a backup is taken

  • MariaDB Enterprise Cluster includes data-at-rest encryption for Galera transaction buffers, non-blocking DDL for Galera, and detailed cluster tracing

  • MariaDB Encryption Plugin for HashiCorp Vault for data-at-rest encryption key storage

  • Predictable releases

What are the benefits of predictable releases?

  • We structure the MariaDB Enterprise Server schedule to trail the MariaDB Community Server schedule, affording time for community testing before an enterprise-ready release.

  • Annual launches of new MariaDB Enterprise Server release series allow for customer planning.

  • Regularly-scheduled and priority-driven maintenance releases allow for customer agility.

When are features backported?

Innovation with each new MariaDB Enterprise Server release series helps our enterprise customers better address the challenges of modern application development.

Given MariaDB Enterprise Server's long lifecycle, we sometimes hear from customers running older versions of MariaDB Enterprise Server who would benefit from a feature introduced in a newer release series.

MariaDB Enterprise Backports allow us to carefully add selected features from a newer release series into an older release. This is done when there is a high value and can be done without risking the stability of a GA (generally available) software version.
