What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it is a database.

What needs improvement?

Performance with databases is always the same, we always want more. Stability needs to be improved. If you are creating a class test, modern machinery or working with the databases, it's always a little bit difficult to configure and keep… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's an open-source solution.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously we worked with MySQL.

What other advice do I have?

I am an IT engineer. I am always researching the best solutions for our clients. I work mainly with open-source solutions, such as Liferay and WordPress. Before this product was called MariaDB it was called MySQL. I would say that for most… more»

What is most valuable?

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 needs improvement?

The scaling for database online transactions needs improvement. Our users now are restoring the data. They should explore the performance of online transactions.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

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.

What other advice do I have?

If you require the use of columnar queries then you should be using MariaDB. Our usage is very limited and we don't know all of the features and how they function. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten, as I have not yet explored… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

MariaDB is the solution that was finalized when looking and comparing it with Oracle and MySQL. MariaDB has an advantage due to the columnar queries and data retrieval.

What is most valuable?

This solution is user-friendly. It's easy, and similar to MySQL.

What needs improvement?

Some areas where this product could be improved are in the clustering technologies, redundancy, active-active deployment model, and also monitoring the backup and restore solution to the cloud. They have made some enhancements on the product but I think that scalability and redundancies are a concern for the entire team. In the next release, I would like to see improvements in the scalability and… more»

What other advice do I have?

We are resellers but we are willing to be partners with MariaDB. Before starting with the implementation and deployment you should read the guide. You should look at the suggested tips, tricks, clues, and the requirements to avoid having any problems. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of MariaDB is the replication mode.

What needs improvement?

MariaDB has to improve from a management perspective. There is not much available for querying internal views to provide information for the operations team. Most other databases such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, or even PostgreSQL, have a big set of internal views that you can query to… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price of this solution represents a very good compromise between the cost and what it offers.

What other advice do I have?

There are many valuable features in MariaDB. MariaDB is a very good database when everything works fine, and I would recommend it. However, I work in operations and if something goes wrong there is no way to start an analysis because MariaDB doesn't provide many tools that help to understand the… more»

What is most valuable?

The ability to deploy or store data that is accessed via the web is one of the solution's most valuable features. The solution is also free to use.

What needs improvement?

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 future releases, it would be helpful if they could create an administration portal for the database to help manage… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used MySQL. We switched because MySQL is no longer open-source. It's now owned by Oracle.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises version of the solution. I would recommend the solution. I'd rate it eight out of ten.

What do you think of MariaDB?

What is most valuable?

It is very easy to develop with MariaDB. The performance is very good.

What needs improvement?

It would be helpful if I could specify multiple drives for the database storage. That is not supported by MariaDB. For example, in Microsoft SQL Server, you can have storage on multiple drives.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using MariaDB since 2014, between five and six years ago.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

MariaDB is very stable. We have used it with perhaps 40,000 concurrent users and it is never down.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is something that can be improved. In my previous organization, we had five developers using it.

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.

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 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.
