M

MariaDB Connector/C

MariaDB Connector/C connects C and C++ applications to MariaDB products. For additional information, see "MariaDB Connector/C".

MariaDB Connector/C++

MariaDB Connector/C++ connects C++ applications to MariaDB products. For additional information, see "MariaDB Connector/C++".

MariaDB Connector/Node.js

MariaDB Connector/Node.js connects Node.js applications to MariaDB products. For additional information, see "MariaDB Connector/Node.js".

MariaDB Connector/ODBC

MariaDB Connector/ODBC connects applications to MariaDB products using the ODBC API. For additional information, see "MariaDB Connector/ODBC".

MariaDB Connector/Python

MariaDB Connector/Python connects Python applications to MariaDB products. For additional information, see "MariaDB Connector/Python".

MariaDB Connector/R2DBC

MariaDB Connector/R2DBC connects reactive Java applications to MariaDB products. R2DBC operations are non-blocking, which makes the R2DBC API more scalable than Java's standard JDBC API. MariaDB Connector/R2DBC is available both with a native R2DBC implementation and the Spring Data R2DBC framework. For additional information, see "MariaDB Connector/R2DBC".

MariaDB SkySQL

MariaDB SkySQL is a cloud database service (DBaaS) from MariaDB Corporation. MariaDB SkySQL delivers MariaDB Enterprise, a comprehensive data platform for modern applications. MariaDB SkySQL runs on expert-maintained cloud infrastructure. For additional information, see "MariaDB SkySQL".

Microsoft Power BI

Microsoft Power BI is a freely-downloadable Business Intelligence (BI) tool for Microsoft Windows. Using the MariaDB Direct Query Adapter, a Microsoft-certified connector, you can connect to MariaDB products and query data without downloading the entire data set to your local machine. For additional information, see "Connect using Microsoft Power BI".

N

Node.js

Node.js is a runtime environment for the JavaScript programming language. For information on connecting to MariaDB products from Node.js applications, see "MariaDB Connector/Node.js".

O

ODBC

ODBC, Open Database Connectivity, is an API. For information on connecting to MariaDB products from applications that use the ODBC API, see "MariaDB Connector/ODBC".

P, Q, R

P

Power BI

See Microsoft Power BI.

Python

Python is a programming language. For information on connecting to MariaDB products from Python applications, see "MariaDB Connector/Python".

R

R2DBC

R2DBC is Reactive Relational Database Connectivity (R2DBC) API. R2DBC operations are non-blocking, which makes the R2DBC API more scalable than Java's standard JDBC API. MariaDB Connector/R2DBC is available both with a native R2DBC implementation and the Spring Data R2DBC framework. For information on connecting to MariaDB products from Java R2DBC applications, see "MariaDB Connector/R2DBC".
