MariaDB Review

Database solution with good performance


What is our primary use case?

When I worked for Groupon in Korea, the main production database was MariaDB. We used it for eCommerce. It was a database where we stored data.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see more compatibility going forward. This would help if there is a need to change databases. E.g., if I change from MySQL 5.7 to another database, then MySQL could be the master database and this could database could be the slave. The replication capability is very important.

For how long have I used the solution?

Two years.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not contacted the technical support. We haven't needed it.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have recently upgraded to change our database and our production database is now MySQL 5.7. If someone wants to use memory based data, then MySQL is better than MariaDB.

We are using MySQL but MariaDB can solve things better than MySQL. Maria DB has better performance than MySQL.

Sometimes Percona is better.

What other advice do I have?

MariaBD is good. It is almost perfect. I would recommend it.

I would rate this product as a nine (out of 10).

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
