We are happy to announce that 2.2.1 beta of MariaDB MaxScale, the next generation database proxy for MariaDB is now available. Beta is an important time in our release and we encourage you to download this release today!
MariaDB ColumnStore 1.1 introduces the Distributed User Defined Aggregate Functions (UDAF) C++ API. MariaDB Server has supported UDAF (a C API) for a while, but now we have extended it to the ColumnStore Engine. This new feature allows anyone to create aggregate functions of arbitrary complexity for distributed execution in the ColumnStore Engine. These functions can also be used as Analytic (Window) functions just like any built in aggregate. You should have a working understanding of C++ to use this API.
This blog post will explore the setup of an environment using self-signed OpenSSL certificates to make it safe enough to replicate data between the multiple backend database servers and also, we’ll show you how to setup the communication between MariaDB MaxScale and the backend.
The MariaDB project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of MariaDB Server 10.2.12. See the release notes and changelog for details.
As we wrap up 2017, we want to take a moment to reflect on the past year. We’ve seen tremendous support from our community, customers and partners – and for that, we are grateful. Our customers across the global have shared heartwarming stories of their business success and we appreciate the opportunity to be your valued partner. For us, 2017 was a milestone year. Our progress this year reflects a global theme that brings us forward to new opportunities.
We are happy to announce the first beta release of MariaDB Server 10.3, the fastest growing open source relational database.
MariaDB Server 10.3 is the next evolution, after MariaDB Server 10.2 with enhancements like Window Functions, Common Table Expressions, JSON functions and CHECK constraints.
For MariaDB Server 10.3 a lot of effort has been spent on database compatibility enhancements, especially for stored routines.
In this blog post, we take a close look at MariaDB ColumnStore data redundancy, a new feature of MariaDB AX. This feature enables you to have highly available storage and automated PM failover when using local disk storage.
Recently, we had a discussion about a hypothetical feature, "START TRANSACTION ON ERROR ROLLBACK", that our users would find very useful. It would allow sending several commands to the server in one batch (a single network packet), and let the server handle the errors. This would combine efficient network use, and atomic execution. It turns out that it is already possible to do this with MariaDB, albeit with a slightly different syntax.
In this blog post, we show how to connect Tableau to MariaDB TX or MariaDB AX and how to create advanced visualizations in Tableau using data in MariaDB.
