An open source community database needs a mature ecosystem to support you, the user. The MariaDB Foundation is the diplomatic service that works throughout the ecosystem and improves the value of your products, quality tested with CI (continuous integration).

Innovation that comes from feature requests and bug reports will continue to ensure that you are getting the best relational database possible. Many examples will be shown on how we’ve made your vision a reality. After all, it’s all about you!
