MariaDB Holiday Reflections and Gratitude
As we wrap up 2017, we want to take a moment to reflect on the past year. We’ve seen tremendous support from our community, customers and partners – and for that, we are grateful. Our customers across the global have shared heartwarming stories of their business success and we appreciate the opportunity to be your valued partner.
For us, 2017 was a milestone year. Our progress this year reflects a global theme that brings us forward to new opportunities.
- Solutions to global problems: To make it easier for our customers to find solutions specific to their types of workloads, we introduced two complete solutions – MariaDB TX for transactional workloads and MariaDB AX for analytical workloads. The solutions are comprised of our technology products, as well as tools, services and support for an optimal production deployment environment. This year was also highlighted by the GA releases of MariaDB Server 10.2, MariaDB MaxScale 2.1, MariaDB ColumnStore 1.1.
- Global event: In April, we held our first annual MariaDB global user conference M|17. Customer from as far away as Asia and Europe traveled to NYC to share success stories, best practices and technical deep dives from the MariaDB team.
- Growing reach worldwide: This year, Debian followed the trend of Linux distributions replacing MySQL with MariaDB as the default. MariaDB reaches more than 60 million developers worldwide through its inclusion in every major Linux distribution, as well as a growing presence in the world’s major cloud providers.
- Global team to support global customers: We’ve expanded our diverse team with employees in 20+ countries, plus Jon Bakke joined the leadership ranks as Chief Revenue Officer.
- Investment from all corners of the world: Additional investment from Alibaba, the European Investment Bank and existing investors continue to fund global growth and product innovation.
We are excited to keep up the momentum in 2018, starting with our second annual MariaDB M|18 user conference in February. We look forward to seeing you in NYC!
Wishing you a happy new year from the team at MariaDB!
