Until the recent release of MariaDB TX 3.0, several enterprise database features were available only from proprietary vendors such as Oracle, Microsoft and IBM. It’s no wonder that our first webinar on MariaDB TX 3.0 drew a large crowd – and spurred a lively discussion with lots of great follow-up questions.
Working in software development, versioning of code is something that we’ve often taken for granted. Task definitions and bug descriptions are preferably also managed by a system that versions every change. On top of this, we use a lot of documents for designing, documenting and managing our development cycles. For example, some of the tools we use are Jira, Google Docs and our own Knowledge Base to accomplish these things, which all provide versioning support.
The MariaDB project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of MariaDB Server 10.3.8. See the release notes and changelog for details.
MariaDB is on its way to the Twin Cities!
We’ll be diving into what's new in MariaDB TX 3.0 (with MariaDB Server 10.3 included), best practices for critical enterprise features such as HA and security, containerization and the brand-new Oracle-compatibility features.

The MariaDB project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of MariaDB Server 10.2.16. See the release notes and changelog for details.
MariaDB backup is the online backup tool that is part of MariaDB TX, it is an online backup tool that supports many advanced features. MariaDB MaxScale is a database proxy that, among other things allows read/write split scalability, online configuration and much more and which is also included with MariaDB TX. By combining these tools, this blog shows how a replication cluster can be scaled online without downtime.
Perhaps the most user-visible InnoDB changes in the MariaDB Server 10.3.7 GA release are Instant ADD COLUMN for InnoDB tables, the new parameter alter_algorithm and the clauses
ALGORITHM=NOCOPY that can protect the database from executing costly
ALTER TABLE operations taking hours.
Upgrade to MariaDB Server 10.3.7, and enjoy the instant
ADD COLUMN with your old InnoDB data files.
Configuring database user accounts for MariaDB MaxScale and a backend cluster has typically required a duplicate effort. This is because an account entry must exist for both the real client host and the MaxScale host. MaxScale authenticates incoming users against the user entry with the real client host. When MaxScale creates the routing session, it uses the client’s username and password scramble to authenticate the client to the backend. The backend sees the connection coming from the machine running MaxScale.
We are happy to announce the general availability (GA) of MariaDB Server 10.3! This release is a big milestone for the development of MariaDB Server and is the result of a huge effort by the development team and contributors – thanks to everyone involved! With our previous major release of MariaDB Server 10.2 last year, we started a journey of adding more enterprise-grade features to better close the gap with proprietary databases.
