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.
