Features and Benefits


MariaDB AX uses columnar storage and compression for faster queries on large data sets, accessing individual columns rather than entire rows to reduce long-running queries from hours to minutes, if not seconds.


MariaDB AX is built on the same foundation as MariaDB Platform but uses a storage engine optimized for scalable, high performance analytics — a simple but powerful SQL-based data warehouse.


MariaDB AX uses parallel query processing and distributed storage to scale out – using multiple servers to increase query concurrency and/or storage capacity – and supports billions of rows, petabytes of data.


MariaDB AX is not limited to querying column-based analytical data, it can perform joins with row-based operational data stored in the same database or in separate databases – and in real time.
