The software is excellent for any application which is too large for Excel. The visual interface surpasses that of most SQL platforms. It is quite useful for data mining in an exploratory way but less useful in statistical and regression analysis.
Our installation scenario is a MariaDB cluster composed of 3 nodes to achieve high availability in the service and in this way the application that accesses the backend (MariaDB) is always working and is not down at any time.
To achieve high performance of the application when accessing the database, a MariaDB MaxScale has been mounted that acts as a proxy for queries to the database.
- Simpler learning curve. MariaDB is a cleaner, simpler system that is (IMO) easier to learn and easier to manage effectively than many other database systems.
- Lower hardware requirements. After migrating to MariaDB from another database software system, we find that our hardware needs have substantially decreased.
- MariaDB support is very responsive. It's like they actually care. On the few occasions we've run into technical issues, support has always come through with what we needed. Once it was showing me a relatively new feature the server supported that I wasn't aware of, that, once I was able to properly make use of it helped me resolve a serious production performance issue.
- Architectural flexibility. As an example, the ready availability of synchronous (Galera) versus asynchronous replication schemes without being locked into one of the other by enormous technical complexity or punitive licensing, allows the customer to find what really works best for their needs.
- Driver Support - Some third party applications use database drivers that cause unexplained slowness with MariaDB. This can be worked around by using the MySQL drivers, but it's not clear what causes the problem in the first place.
- Support - While online communities are helpful in diagnosing problems, there isn't as much professional documentation/support available for MariaDB as some of the other major database options.
- Data Visualization - It would be helpful if there were more built in options for analyzing statistics and generating reports.

Well I have never had to use MariaDB for support. However, they get a ten because the support community online is just fantastic. There is always someone there to answer a question. Moreover it is easy to find documentation online. Again, this is often the case with open source software
While we have used SQL, 1010data is really the only industry standard product available for our use.
We know others DB alternatives like MySQL, Microsoft SQLServer, PostgreSQL. We selected MariaDB because it offer advanced features like active-active cluster, with no costs and easy to learn. With MariaDB was easy to migrate ours applications that use MySQL, with no modifications needs. Microsoft SQLServer has the best client to management, but you need to pay for it.
Return on Investment
- Positive impact on help business make a data-drive decision
- Positive impact on big data analysis
- Negative impact on user friendly
- Easy to set up and maintain.
- Massive user base which makes it relatively easier to find answers if there's something wrong.
- Open source and free to use, meaning we don't have to think twice to use it in production in terms of costs.
