Rick Whiting

As big data volumes explode, demand grows for database, data management and business analytics technologies for deriving value from that data. Here are 10 cool big data platforms and tools that have debuted so far this year.

MariaDB SkySQL

MariaDB develops the popular community developed, commercially supported MariaDB relational database that’s used for both transactional and analytical tasks.

In March the company launched MariaDB SkySQL, a fully managed cloud Database-as-a-Service that also supports transactional and analytical applications. SkySQL uses Kubernetes for container orchestration; the ServiceNow workflow engine for inventory, configuration and workflow management; the Prometheus free software for real-time monitoring and alerting; and the Grafana open-source analytics and visualization application for data visualization.

In May MariaDB expanded SkySQL’s functionality with the ability to customize database options and configurations to meet enterprise-class security, high-availability and disaster recovery requirements.
