In this DBTA webinar, MariaDB, MySQL and Postgres are compared across seven categories: high availability, disaster recovery, security, performance, scalability, development and Oracle Database compatibility. It goes on to identify feature and architectural differences and what they mean to developers and DBAs alike.
