About MariaDB

The fastest and 100% open-source relational database management system

What is MariaDB?

MariaDB is the result of the concern of some of the original MySQL developers following Oracle’s acquisition of the company in 2009. Being a MySQL fork, the goal of the community behind MariaDB has always been to maintain a high degree of compatibility with it, including library binary parity and exact matching with MySQL APIs and commands. However, over time, MariaDB has introduced new features not available in MySQL, giving it a huge advantage in terms of performance.

Over the years, MariaDB has developed its own roadmap, focusing on constantly improving key aspects of scalability and processing speed. This is how today you can get 5 major versions of this incredible database.
