Overall Satisfaction with MariaDB

It is the main data base solution for almost all the applications we are developing that require storing data in relational database. It's used for storing content and parts of websites as well as some configuration. It's also used for simple contest apps that require entry code checkout. Software development team is mainly working with MariaDB but apps, website or tools based on MariaDB are used across all organization.
  • It's easy to use for software development team members with knowledge of SQL.
  • It's better than standard MySQL solutions, it's a little bit faster.
  • It's also often required for some applications that we use for example CMS.
  • While using with large data it's slowing.
  • Part of our offer is based on solutions that is provided by MariaDB. Websites and web apps use MariaDB as data engine.
It's easy to use and fits the best in our business offering.
Documentation of MariaDB is well written. We didn't need to use other support.

It's really good as a database for CMS, small apps. Its relational structure is well suited for organizing structured data used while building web apps and other web solutions.

It is noticeably slowing when working on tables with 10-20+ millions of rows. We had cases when we made operations, for example select or insert, on over 60 millions rows and some of them took a few seconds. It was crucial to use faster servers to achieve better latency.
