General Availability of MariaDB ColumnStore 1.0

I am happy to announce the general availability of MariaDB ColumnStore 1.0!

MariaDB ColumnStore is a powerful open source columnar storage engine that unites transactional and analytic processing with a single ANSI SQL front end to deliver a solution that simplifies high-performance, big data analytics.

By leveraging MariaDB’s extensible architecture, we radically simplified the entry to analytics. While users continue to access the single SQL interface and familiar MariaDB API, data is analyzed with our highly optimized columnar storage engine and parallel query processing.

ColumnStore 1.0 key features include:

  • Better Price Performance – ColumnStore brings the power of SQL and freedom of open source to big data analytics with 90% less cost per TB per year compared to proprietary data warehouses

  • Easy Enterprise Analytics – Single SQL interface for OLTP and analytics including complex aggregation, joins and windowing functions at the data storage level

  • Faster, More Efficient Queries – Parallel query processing and data ingestion for real-time big data analytics on distributed environments

This milestone was achieved by great teamwork from MariaDB’s engineering team and community support. Get started with ColumnStore today and enjoy the power of open source innovation for big data analytics.
