It’s a columnar storage engine (Wikipedia: Column-oriented DBMS), enabling what is often called HTAP (Wikipedia: Hybrid Transactional/Analytical Processing).

The ColumnStore engine is part of MariaDB Server 10.5.

MariaDB 5.5 R.I.P.

Requiescat in pace. May MariaDB 5.5 rest in peace!

As the maintenance policy of the MariaDB Foundation states, we are committed to maintaining each release for 5 years. MariaDB 5.5 was announced for General Availability on 11 April 2012, so EOL was originally on 11 April 2017. At that point, we extended it by three years, due to its widespread usage in distributions.

Today, we have 11 April 2020, so this is no accidental, sudden death. Everyone could see it coming.

One Final Release MariaDB 5.5.68

However, we have decided to build one final release MariaDB 5.5.68, with remaining security updates.

Join the Solstice Run Sat 20 June 2020

My favourite running track is full! Full of newbie runners, young and old. Mostly running alone, sometimes in pairs – but all following social distancing. 

Social distancing can be coupled with emotional closeness. That’s at least what Sauli Niinistö propagates, the President of Finland. In line with these two phenomena – emotional closeness between isolated colleagues, and the boom of running as a source of energy during lockdown – we are launching the Solstice Run

We want to inspire non-runners to run

As initiators, we want to inspire others to start running.
