MariaDB offers the popular community developed, commercially supported MariaDB relational database that’s used for both transactional and analytical tasks. The company was founded in 2009 by the original developers of the popular MySQL database and MariaDB was originally built on the MySQL code base.

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.
