MariaDB out in the market


Hi Charles,

MariaDB is a amazing choice for developers and database administrators who are looking for a robust and free SQL server. MariaDb is grounded on MySQL so all commands, interfaces, libraries and APIs that exist in MySQL also exist in MariaDB. We dont need to convert databases to change to MariaDB. MariaDB is a true drop in replacement of MySQL. MariaDB has so much of nice features from which you can take lots of advantages. MariaDB is packaged additional storage engines that MySQL don’t have.

And Yes its totally free.

For more information on comparing MariaDB versus MySQL, see this site:

You can also compare MariaDB to other free SQL server like Sqlite. Take a look at this web site to know more.

I hope it helped.

MariaDB out in the market


MariaDB is a division or fork of the MySQL relational database management system. The development of MariaDB is a community effort of different developers. The contributors of MariaDB are forced to share their copyright with Monty Program AB with some worries that the course of the development of the project will go directly to an acquiring commercial company, the Oracle.

MariaDB’s lead developer is Michael “Monty” Widenius, is also the founder of Monty Program AB as well as MySQL AB. Sun Microsystems acquired one of his companies, the MySQL AB, for $1 billion US. The fork, MariaDB, is named after his younger daughter, Maria. Below is a list of tools that works properly with MariaDB.

  • Navicat – string of proprietary database management applications designed to work with Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
  • DBEdit – an application for free administration for MariaDB and other databases.
  • HeidiSQL – this one is a free open source client for MySQL that works on Microsoft Windows.
