MariaDB Server: The open source relational database

MariaDB Day Brussels 0202 2020

The first MariaDB Day will be held in Brussels at the Bedford Hotel and Congress Centre on Sunday February 2. This is a complementary event to the MySQL, MariaDB and Friends Day at FOSDEM, which is far-oversubscribed, and gives an opportunity for other speakers and more in-depth coverage of MariaDB-related topics. Attendance is free, but space is limited, so please RSVP on the Meetup page if you plan to attend. We also wish to gratefully thank our sponsors, MariaDB Corporation and Virgil Security Inc., for supporting the event. Virgil Security enables a new generation of enhanced privacy and security for applications, cloud services, and the Internet of Things by providing easy-to-deploy and easy-to-use cryptographic software and services for developers and end-users.…

MariaDB Server is one of the most popular open source relational databases. It's made by the original developers of MySQL and guaranteed to stay open source. It is part of most cloud offerings and the default in most Linux distributions.

It is built upon the values of performance, stability, and openness, and MariaDB Foundation ensures contributions will be accepted on technical merit. Recent new functionality includes advanced clustering with Galera Cluster 4, compatibility features with Oracle Database and Temporal Data Tables, allowing one to query the data as it stood at any point in the past.

MariaDB Foundation relies on sponsorship for funding its activities, furthering MariaDB Server adoption and working with contributors to merge pull requests.

MariaDB Foundation does not do custom feature development or work for hire. However, MariaDB Foundation is looking for sponsors of general development areas, such as:

  • Compatibility with Oracle and other propriety databases
  • CONNECT storage
  • Engine documentation of migration practices
  • Documentation localisation

MariaDB sponsorship levels are Diamond (200k€), Platinum (100k€), Gold (50k€), and Silver (25k€) per year.

MariaDB thrives thanks to its community.

MariaDB Foundation ensures all contributions are handled.
