Up until 2012, MySQL held a near-monopoly on the title, having won every year since at least 2001 (except for 2002, won by PostgreSQL).
Since 2013, however, it’s been all MariaDB, and now MariaDB is going for a hat-trick of wins.
2015 was a great year for MariaDB development, and the latest stable release, 10.1, includes Galera Cluster, a true multi-master solution, table, tablespace and log encryption, page compression, replication enhancements, numerous optimizations, and a whole lot more. …
The mariadb.org website had over one million page views in 2015, a growth of about 9% since 2014. Good growth has been visible all over the MariaDB ecosystem and we can conclude that 2015 was a successful year for MariaDB.
MariaDB was included for the first time in an official Debian release (version 8.0 “Jessie”) and there has been strong adoption of MariaDB 10.0 in Linux distributions that already shipped 5.5. MariaDB is now available from all major Linux distributions including SUSE, RedHat, Debian and Ubuntu.

MariaDB 10.1 shipped a few days ago, so it’s now a good time to focus on another important event. Last week we had a three day MariaDB developers meeting. It took place in Amsterdam (Oct 13-15). Meetings like this tend to have a great impact on the roadmap of the product. Booking.com was very kind to offer their facilities for the developer meeting.
Thank you Booking.com!
