Likelihood to Recommend

MariaDB

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.

SingleStore (formerly MemSQL)

SingleStore DB (formerly MemSQL) is good for a high-volume, real-time data feed, a high number of concurrent queries, and excellent for both OLAP and OLTP workloads. It's not good for unstructured data store.

Pros

MariaDB

  • 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.

  • High data volume processing.
  • Operational data enablement.

Cons

MariaDB

  • 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.

  • GUI needs to be better.
  • To scale out on the fly needs to be a little simpler.

I still want to see the performance about using latest version of spark and memsql. About renewal, if there is a new and better version of spark-memsql connector, then maybe.

MariaDB is very usable and stable to be used in production settings as an alternative to MySQL. The shortcomings of SQL are present but well understood in the community, and if the decision were to be made again, I would choose MariaDB over MySQL on future projects.

SingleStore DB (formerly MemSQL) covers a wide spectrum of use-cases and provides ANSI-SQL support, MySQL drop-in replacement.It supports several deployment options--cloud, Helios, on-premise bare-metal or virtualized. Has drivers for many programming languages like Java and Python, for BI tools like Zoomdata and Tableau.

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

The team is always available, responsive, and quite helpful. It is clear by their answers that the support reps are experts in SingleStore DB (formerly MemSQL). They can deliver proper answers and understand the client's environment. I never had an issue that took them long to figure out. They are also ready to walk us through upgrades and have meetings whenever required.

Alternatives Considered

MariaDB

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.

SingleStore (formerly MemSQL)

  • VoltDB is more transactional.
  • Redis just a k-v as is Voldemort.
  • Elasticsearch security is an issue. Plus more of reads than writes
  • Aerospike great K-V that is great with writes and reads. But expensive. More expensive than SingleStore DB (formerly MemSQL).
  • Firebird opensource, but scalability is an issue
  • SingleStore DB (formerly MemSQL) at least supports ANSI-SQL. Between SingleStore DB (formerly MemSQL) and VoltDB, I would choose VoltDB, based on pricing.

Return on Investment

MariaDB

  • 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.

SingleStore (formerly MemSQL)

  • It offers me solution to solve spark storage problem.
  • It adds more complexity of my application since multiple tech softwares are involved.
  • More types of bugs will be encountered when doing streamliner, including hardware connection.
