We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I find the ease of deployment to be the most valuable aspect of this solution."

"From the user's perspective, the performance of the columnar queries is very good in terms of the database when comparing it to the Oracle, and MySQL."
"What I like best about MariaDB is that it is open-source and reliable."
"I don't think the solution is very scalable, because the scalability of the performance when using more than one process is not very good."
"It would be interesting if they added functionality with redundancy, reputation, and variability."
"It would be good to have more automation and integration with the tools from other vendors."
"In the next release, it should support JSON, XML, and replication with third-party tools."
"The interface should be more user-friendly. It should be able to connect directly to the database and Interact with it without having to use commands. It needs better integration."
"In the next release, I would like to see improvements in the scalability and redundancy features."
"Maria DB has to improve from a management perspective."
"It's not very stable. It needs improvement."
"It would be helpful if I could specify multiple drives for the database storage."

"The scaling for database online transactions needs improvement."
"Master-master replication is something that needs to be simplified."
"It is a public domain system as every customer can install it on their system without paying any license fee."
"It is okay."
"The price of this solution represents a very good compromise between the cost and what it offers."
"It's an open-source solution."
