MENLO PARK, Calif. and HELSINKI, Finland – February 8, 2017 Today, MariaDB® Corporation, the company behind the fastest growing open source database, announced it is launching a series of educational training sessions across North America. The Roadshow will help DBAs, architects, and developers connect with MariaDB experts and learn best practices for high availability, the managing of scale-out environments, database security threats, big data analytics, and how to use MariaDB with containers like Docker.
