If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering MariaDB, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
MariaBD is good. It is almost perfect. I would recommend it. I would rate this product as a nine (out of 10).
This is a product that I would recommend. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
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 use cases it works fine. Before implementing you have to understand what your use case is for. Other databases work better for different use cases. You have to ask yourself if you want to use a relational database or a NoSQL. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
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 problem. In order to make this an enterprise tool, or an enterprise-level database, it needs to improve from this perspective. Otherwise, it will only be good for very small deployments. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
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.
We use the on-premises version of the solution. I would recommend the solution. I'd rate it eight out of ten.
