What's New in MariaDB ColumnStore 5?
MariaDB ColumnStore 5 is included with MariaDB Community Server 10.5.
The new features in MariaDB ColumnStore 5 are listed below.
MariaDB Community Server Convergence
MariaDB has been continually improving the integration of MariaDB ColumnStore with MariaDB Community Server:
In MariaDB ColumnStore 1.2 and earlier, MariaDB ColumnStore required special custom-built releases of MariaDB Server.
MariaDB Enterprise ColumnStore 1.4 was included with the standard MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.4 releases. It was the first release to integrate with a standard ES release using the ColumnStore storage engine plugin.
Starting with CS 10.5.7, MariaDB ColumnStore 5 is included with the standard MariaDB Community Server 10.5 releases.
The version of MariaDB ColumnStore 5 depends on the version of MariaDB Community Server being used:
MariaDB ColumnStore 5.5.2
MariaDB ColumnStore 5.5.1
MariaDB ColumnStore 5.4.1
For single-node ColumnStore 5 deployments, the ColumnStore storage engine, the ColumnStore command-line interfaces, and other internal ColumnStore components are deployed by installing a single package in addition to the MariaDB Community Server package.
Installing ColumnStore 5 no longer requires running
columnstore-post-install or postConfigure.
ColumnStore 5 can be installed to run as a non-root user.
To install this version, see Deploy MariaDB ColumnStore 5.
MariaDB ColumnStore 5 simplifies administration.
ColumnStore 5 no longer includes or supports mcsadmin.
For single-node ColumnStore 5 deployments, the ColumnStore 5 service is administered by systemd:
Enable during startup
Disable during startup
S3-Compatible Object Storage
MariaDB ColumnStore 5 supports IAM roles with S3-compatible object storage.
