Overall Satisfaction with MariaDB Platform

We have a MariaDb Cluster to store 2.2 TB of data with a manual sharding to optimize the access data. We use several engines like Spider, Connect, Federated, MyIsam, Memory and InnoDb. Currently, we are planning [to] add ColumnStore too. We also have a PoC with Galera for HA between managers and we did uses cases with Max Scale.
Our MariaDb platform is developed on premise and currently we need to only publish some data on cloud and we [are] doing it with pipeline to upload data (but in other data warehouses). [Due to the] nature of our apps, we don't need a cloud database and due to inversion on our platform, we prefer follow up with our solution.
  • Simplicity
  • Open source
  • SQL standard
  • High cost horizontal scale
  • Kafka compatibility
  • JSON management
  • Multi-platform apps
  • Community support
  • Help improve speed access apps
It did not always compete against these technologies. Most of the time, it was complementing these databases for certain use cases to help provide a much more complete database. This makes more users want to use it to explore new solutions that help users. This is our target and how [we] work with MariaDb.
Yes, the help that was given us [by the] MariaDb Support Team was excellent. We had several historical problems that we [couldn't] fix it and with them telling us the answer (most cases were very specific details) that allowed us to continue with ideas that we had stalled.
We don't use MariaDb Platform Enterprise.
We don't use SkySQL.

Would you buy MariaDB Platform again?


  • Applications where the users need [to] execute many short queries.
  • With new storage engines such as Aria, which allows to replace MyISAM with some improvements, and XtraDB, which evolves InnoDB.
  • To fuse the legacy features with the features available in NoSQL databases.
  • Connection management, which allows multiplying the number of concurrent accesses.
  • New clustering engines, such as Galera, which allow interesting possibilities for Cloud adoption.
