The MariaDB Foundation is pleased to announce the availability of MariaDB 10.4.12, MariaDB 10.3.22, MariaDB 10.2.31, MariaDB 10.1.44 and MariaDB 5.5.67, the latest stable releases in their respective series.
See the release notes and changelogs for details.
MySQL 8.0 has introduced roles, a feature that was present since MariaDB 10.0. There are quite a number of differences between the two databases.
During the MariaDB day Vicențiu will present a comparison between them and see how roles are useful for your application and what are the key differences to consider when working with both databases.
For a large Open Source project to survive, it needs the right testing infrastructure in place. Because of this, the MariaDB Foundation made the whole build system a community shared resource. In this talk we will show how we have accomplished this and how the community can benefit.
MariaDB has an Open Source engine called ColumnStore which provides columnar storage capabilities. During the MariaDB Day Andrew Hutchings (a.k.a. LinuxJedi) will hold a talk explaining what columnar storage is, how it works and the advantages / disadvantages of it. He will also talk about how you can use it to help with things such as your analytical workloads alongside your traditional OLTP workloads.
eBPF on Linux 4.9+ is probably the best way to study performance problems. Basic usage of ftrace interface, bcc tools and bpftrace, as well as main bpftrace features and commands are presented. Several typical use cases (including adding dynamic probes to MariaDB servers, working with stack traces and creating Flame Graphs) are discussed.
As the first MariaDB Day is approaching we begin introducing our speakers. Dmitry Dain will talk about Enabling post-compromise protection for stored data with Virgil PureKit security framework and MariaDB database.
If you’re collecting personal data, you’re responsible for protecting it. And in this day and age, the question of when a database will be compromised is not a matter of “if” but “when.” So how can developers protect data within their systems without hiring expensive consultants or outsourced firms?
In this session, Dmitry Dain presents the Virgil PureKit security toolkit which protects passwords and data from being decrypted even if the database itself is compromised.
A provisional schedule for the first MariaDB Day, to be held as part of the FOSDEM Fringe in Brussels at the Bedford Hotel and Congress Centre on Sunday February 2, is now available.
MariaDB Day is a complementary event to MySQL, MariaDB and Friends, giving an opportunity to more speakers and for more in-depth MariaDB coverage.
Attendance is free, but space is limited, so please RSVP on the Meetup page if you plan to attend.
