Video Transcript

Welcome to learning the MariaDB ECOSYSTEM. You’re probably familiar with MariaDB. It’s an excellent general purpose relational database that thousands of companies around the world rely on every single day. What you may not be aware of are some of the other products available from the makers of MariaDB.

Over the course of this video series, I’ll be giving you quick 1,000-foot overviews of the following products. First up is MariaBackup. It’s a backup solution specifically tailored for use with MariaDB. Next is MariaDB Galera Cluster. It’s a multi-master clustering solution.

MariaDB MaxScale is a database proxy server. MariaDB ColumnStore flips MariaDB on its side, storing data in columns instead of rows. And the last product we’ll be going over is MariaDB ClustrixDB. It’s a massively scalable and optimized variant of MariaDB for high-performance workloads.
