Overall Satisfaction with MariaDB
MariaDB is being used across our entire organization for various databases. Various different teams use MariaDB and rely on it to maintain their backend application. We implement monitoring and metrics for MariaDB to ensure we are getting the best performance out of our databases. MariaDB can be replicated on other servers for high availability
MariaDB provided the best fit for our business in upgrading legacy systems which were originally designed to use MySQL as a backend. By using MariaDB, no changes to the overall systems needed to be altered, reducing the time needed to upgrade everything. Other solutions required significant backend changes to work for our needs.
MariaDB is best for use cases where MySQL was previously being used but due to licensing or not wanting to use Oracle's MySQL, you can use MariaDB. For the most part, it's a drop in replacement supporting the same syntax as MySQL, requiring no changes in applications which use it, meaning MySQL Databases can be migrated to MariaDB.
