MariaDB TX

Enterprise reliability.
Open source innovation.

MariaDB TX is the leading enterprise open source database. Proven in production, it’s the only one with Oracle Database compatibility, sharding, temporal tables and point-in-time rollback. Fueled by community innovation, it’s also the only one using purpose-built storage engines to maximize the storage efficiency and query performance of applications with traditional and/or non-traditional workloads – including web, mobile and IoT applications.

What’s New

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.

Temporal features

DBAs and developers can find out what data looked like at a previous point in time (and how it’s changed) using system-versioned tables – a first for enterprise open source databases.

Transparent sharding

MariaDB TX scales out storage and writes by partitioning tables and spreading them across multiple database instances – and it’s not only transparent to applications, it’s transactional.
