Development and systems Q&A
by Justin Ellingwood
It would be nice to be able to use MariaDB as a managed database on DO in addition to MySQL, as it provides some features that MySQL does not, and it receives more frequent updates.
This thread has been active for too long without any response on weather this is being considered or not. This would be an amazing feature to have.
The development of mariadb is a lot more active.And mysql is missing some features.
e.g. UNIQUE Indizes on text columnshttps://gist.github.com/BacLuc/0ffb97c8d32b1190b649a955134d0625
MariaDB performansı ve yönetimi mysql8'den daha iyidir
The JSON operations in the recent MariaDB are superior in performance AND flexibility to those of Mysql. We rely upon these for our production environments.
it's much better than Mysql!
Agree with this totally
I am using ERP solution that runs exclusively on MariaDB. Since it is critical to my company and I don't want to manage the DB admin myself I am thinking to install on AWS instead.
There is many reasons for favouring MariaDB over MySQL. We've had a stint with MySQL 8 and found it performance lacking for the same hardware spec.
Also, MySQL is commercial where MariaDB is GPL and has more frequent updates. MySQL often has lengthy waits between new features and prefer to support the open-source community.
MariaDB supports bi-temporal tables. Hard to find this feature with alternative managed databases
+1, mariadb is a defacto standard for many major linux distributions.
I was surprised as well to see that MySQL is supported whereas MariaDB is not. With Oracle taking more control of MySQL years ago I would have suspected that MariaDB would be the standard by now. I would have chosen MariaDB as my choice for a project I'm looking into working, but without this support I will have to either use PostgreSQL (which I am less familiar with) or look elsewhere.
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
