Overall Satisfaction with MariaDB

MariaDB is used in our organization to handle medium/small sized DB with non-mission critical applications. It is used for information lookup and small-sized reporting.
  • Standard RDMBS which runs on an open-sourced platform
  • Performance is enough for small to medium-sized applications
  • Low cost
  • Within our organization we put so much effort into maintaining software security, do we believe MariaDB should handle the security patch better.
  • Certain that join performance could improve
  • Support model is still a concern for mission critical applications
  • Free license
  • Runs on cheap Linux commodity hardware
  • Works well and is fast enough on most cases
Total open source vs. Oracle's control.
Very good RDBMS, very similar to MySQL.
Very good for a cheap and quick RDBMS solution an on an open system, it should fit most people's needs. However, I still would not put mission-critical applications on it yet.
