Overview

MariaDB ColumnStore extends MariaDB Enterprise Server with distributed, columnar storage and a massively parallel processing (MPP) shared nothing architecture, transforming it into a standalone or distributed data warehouse for ad hoc SQL queries and advanced analytics without the need to create indexes. With MariaDB ColumnStore running in SkySQL you get a cloud data warehouse and DBaaS in one service.

ColumnStore is available in new release of SkySQL through the ColumnStore Data Warehouse topology. For additional information, see MariaDB SkySQL DBaaS.

MariaDB Enterprise Server is a premium version of MariaDB Community Server that runs in any cloud and includes additional enterprise features like:

  • enhancements for commercial production deployment such as advanced audit capabilities and the MaxScale database proxy

  • long-term maintenance and support

  • backports to bring popular new features to customers running on older MariaDB Enterprise Server releases

Companies who switch to MariaDB Enterprise Server from legacy databases save up to 90% of total database costs.

Enterprise Server is available in new release of SkySQL through the Enterprise Server With Replica(s) topology or Enterprise Server Single Node topology. For additional information, see MariaDB SkySQL DBaaS.

Enterprise Server is available in previous release of SkySQL through the Primary/Replica topology or Single Node Transactions topology. For additional information, see MariaDB SkySQL previous release.

MariaDB SkySQL is a cloud database service (DBaaS) from MariaDB Corporation:

MariaDB Xpand is chosen by developers when creating large, mission-critical, read/write scale applications which require ACID-level consistency and enterprise-grade reliability. Xpand combines the scalability of a NoSQL database with the robustness of a SQL database. As with MariaDB Enterprise Server and ColumnStore, Xpand is front-ended by MaxScale database proxy for high availability, disaster recovery and enhanced security. Xpand can be deployed in the cloud as a SkySQL database service on AWS or Google Cloud and runs across multiple public cloud regional centers and on-premise for multi-cloud and hybrid operations.

Xpand is available in new release of SkySQL through the Xpand Distributed SQL topology. For additional information, see MariaDB SkySQL DBaaS.

Xpand is available in previous release of SkySQL through the Distributed Transactions topology. For additional information, see MariaDB SkySQL previous release.
