Product Overview

Platform & architecture

MariaDB products are built on the same underlying database and leverage pluggable storage to extend it. The result is an extensible database platform capable of supporting a diverse set of workloads – traditional and scalable web, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT), relational and non-relational, transactional and analytical.


MariaDB Server

MariaDB Server is the foundation upon which all MariaDB products are built. It is a 100% open source database with a set of enterprise features that, until now, could only be found in a proprietary database – including Oracle Database compatibility (e.g., PL/SQL), temporal tables, sharding, point-in-time rollback and transparent data encryption.

Deploy anywhere

MariaDB is infrastructure agnostic. It can run on anything, anywhere – bare metal, virtual machines or containers, in a private data center or in the cloud (public, private or hybrid) – and is the default database on leading Linux distributions, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux/CentOS and SUSE Linux Enterprise.

  • Commodity hardware

    Commodity hardware

    MariaDB doesn’t require a SAN, proprietary networking or terabytes of memory in order to meet high availability requirements – it runs on anything and everything.

  • Public/private clouds

    Public/private clouds

    MariaDB is the preferred database for cloud infrastructure – public, private or hybrid, disaster recovery or production, transactional or analytical.

  • Containers and Kubernetes

MariaDB Tx

MariaDB TX is the leading enterprise open source database for web, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) applications – at any scale. By extending MariaDB Server with the world’s most advanced database proxy (MariaDB MaxScale), MariaDB TX provides the high availability, security and performance capabilities necessary to support business-critical, mission-critical applications – and eliminates the need for proprietary databases and high maintenance fees.

MariaDB Ax

MariaDB AX is enterprise open source database for modern analytics (ad hoc, on demand and in real time), extending MariaDB Server with distributed, columnar storage, massively parallel processing (MPP) and streaming data ingestion to enable scalable, high-performance analytics with standard SQL – and without the need for complex ETL processes, proprietary data warehouses, expensive hardware or multi-million-dollar appliances.

  • Compete via faster time to insight

MariaDB Services and Support

MariaDB provides world-class support, technical and consultative, with a global support team backed by the people who wrote the code, MariaDB engineers. In addition, MariaDB has a dedicated team of remote DBAs and enterprise architects to help customers meet both business and technology goals, in a pinch or on a long-term basis.

Why MariaDB?

We’re committed to delivering on the promise of open source software while meeting the needs of enterprise customers. We want everyone to realize the benefits of community collaboration and innovation.

We created the leading enterprise open source database. You made it the fastest growing.

Still, our goal is not to create the best open source database. It’s to create the best database, and be open source.
