We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros

It's also easy to operate and cheap.""MariaDB performs well as the backend database for our cloud-based telephony solution.""The solution is very easy to implement.""MariaDB is easy to install and is stable and scalable.""The solution runs very quickly. It's not slow at all.""The most valuable feature of MariaDB is the replication mode."

More MariaDB Pros »

"It has improved my organization's functionality and performance.""Vertica is a columnar database where the query performance is extremely fast and it can be used for real-time integrations for API and other applications. The solution requires zero maintenance which is helpful.""Speed and resiliency are probably the best parts of this product.""Vertica's most outstanding features are the compression rates achieved and the speed of access of high volume data.""The performance is very good and the aggregate records are fast.""For me, It's performance, scalability, low cost, and it's integrated into enterprise and big data environments.""I have found the solution to be scalable.""The feature I like best is performance. We use Red Tool and Red Job for the data warehouse and reporting. It's perfect. Performance is good, and it can return ad hoc queries very quickly. Of course, it's a cluster, so it's easy to scale."

Cons
"The GUI could be improved a bit. The user interface needs to be improved.""I would like to see more compatibility going forward. This would help if there is a need to change databases.""The scaling for database online transactions needs improvement.""MariaDB could be improved by adding more automation.""The license should be cheaper and closer to that offered by MySQL, Oracle and other products.""The product needs more features and more functionality. It's imperative that it supports more platforms, and supports more operating systems.""The stability could always continue to be improved upon.""Maria DB has to improve from a management perspective."

More MariaDB Cons »

"Support is an area where it could get better.""We are looking for a cheaper deployment for the solution. Although we did a lot of benchmarks, like Redshift. We tried Redshift, it didn't work. It didn't work out for us as well.""Vertica offers a platform-as-a-service version, but their software-as-a-service solution is only available on AWS. They need to get a SaaS version on Azure and GCP as fast as possible.""The geospatial functionality could be designed better.""It's hard to make it slow for a small data volume. For large volumes, it's hard to make it work. It's also hard to make it faster, and to make it scale.""They could improve on customer service.""Promotion/marketing must be improved, even though it is a very useful product at very good price, it is not as "popular" as it should be.""Some of our small to medium-sized customers would like to see containerization and flexibility from the deployment standpoint."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"MariaDB is open-source and self-hosted.""The price of this solution represents a very good compromise between the cost and what it offers.""This is an open-source product, which can be used free of charge.""I used the open-source version, which is available free of charge.""When it comes to MariaDB, it should have a more cost-effective license.""This is an open source solution with no licensing fees.""The licensing cost is approximately $4000.00 per year and the licensing is based on the software and the number of posts that you make.""It's an open-source solution."

More MariaDB Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price could be cheaper and it is best to negotiate the price.""It's difficult today to compete with open-source solutions. In these areas, there is a lot of competition and the price of this solution is a bit pricy.""The pricing could improve, it is a little expensive.""The price is reasonable. We use a pay per license model. Firstly, you need to buy a license. After that, you mainly pay the annual support fee of around 20% or 25%. I think their prices are quite reasonable.""From a cost perspective, the software is less than most of its competitors."
