2. Aims Give you an update of what weve donewith MariaDB Discuss the broader MySQL ecosystem 3. What is it? A branch of MySQL with more features? A branch of MySQL with better features? A fork? 4. MariaDB is... Community Developed Feature Enhanced Backward Compatible 5. Whos behind it? MySQL (database) owned by MySQL AB(company) Monty Program is just a sponsor ofMariaDB maria-captains: 64% Monty Program, 36%community (+16% MP 3Q/2011) 6. When did this begin? Sun buys MySQL AB in January 2008 Oracle proposes acquisition of SunMicrosystems in April 2009 Widenius decides that beyond the engine(Febuary 2009), focus on MariaDB, acomplete database solution 7. Why MariaDB? MySQL - an open source product orproject? MariaDB is an open source project 8. Aims of MariaDB 100% compatible, drop-in replacement toMySQL Stable (bug-free) releases GPLv2 9. Compatibility with MySQL There is no NDB cluster Tools are similar (somestorage engine additional tools for Aria, PBXT) Client libraries, client-server protocol, SQL XtraDB enabled by default;dialect, replication master- InnoDB and InnoDB pluginslave all similarare included, but not enabled by default Data les are supported aslong as its similar between http://kb.askmonty.org/v/versions mariadb-versus-mysql- compatibility 10. Whats in MariaDB 5.1 Released February 2010 Croatian collations Create external Numerous bug xesbuildsystem usingBuildbot + VMs for test Test cases and coverage+builds improvements Release lled with Removal of mutexesstorage engines Compiler warnings gone!

Deployments, deployments, deploymentshappy users: pap.fr, wabtec, Paybox Services, OLX, Jelastic, etc. We made the switch on Saturday -- and were seeing benets already -- ourMariaDB had these same bugs that we ran into daily optimization time is down fromwith MySQL. However the big difference was that 24 minutes to just 4 minutes -- Aliwhen we reported these bugs, they were quicklyWatters, CEO, travelblog.orgresolved within 48 hours! -- Dreas van Donselaar,Chief Technology Ofcer, SpamExpertsB.V. after migrating over 300 servers from MySQL5.0 to MariaDB 5.1. Migrating from MySQL 5.1 to MariaDB 5.2 was assimple as removing MySQL RPMs and installingthe MariaDB packages, then runningmysql_upgrade. - Panayot Belchev, proprietor,Host Bulgaria on providingMariaDB to over 7,000 of their web hostingcustomers. 29. Getting MariaDB http://mariadb.org/ is the site + downloads Get it via OpenSUSE build service Its in Gentoo, FreeBSD, Homebrew http://kb.askmonty.org/v/distributions-which-include-mariadb 30. The future? GIS Merging takes time Features (different implementations) makeit into upstream 31. We have a book 32. Support Monty Program does NRE/engineeringwork for MySQL/MariaDB (not L1/L2support) Support via capable service providers http://mariadb.org/service-providers/ Percona, FromDual, Open Query,SoftMethod GmbH, SkySQL 33.
