MariaDB Platform for Transactions

MariaDB Platform for Transactions

Enterprise reliability.
Open source innovation.

MariaDB Platform is the leading enterprise open source database, featuring Oracle Database compatibility, sharding, temporal tables, dynamic data masking and point-in-time rollback. It leverages an innovative architecture based on pluggable, purpose-built storage engines, allowing different tables (or databases) with different workloads to use different storage engines for better query performance – each one optimized for a specific workload.

What’s New

Transaction replay

If an automatic failover occurs mid-transaction, it’s automatically replayed as both the connection and the session failover as well – all transparent to the client, and thus the application itself.

Causal reads

When clients read data aftering writing it, and replication is used for read scaling, their reads will be routed to the primary database until their write has been applied on a secondary.

Oracle compatibility

Oracle Database compatibility, including data types and stored procedures, makes it easier than ever to migrate from Oracle Database and get rid of the burdens of proprietary databases.
