Rick Whiting

Part 2 of CRN’s Big Data 100 includes a look at the vendors solution providers should know in the big data database system space.

MariaDB

Top Executive: CEO Michael Howard

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

In 2021 the company launched MariaDB Xpand, a distributed SQL database for running web, mobile and IoT applications at a scale that the company says standard relational databases cannot achieve. The company also markets MariaDB SkySQL, a fully managed cloud Database as a Service that supports transactional and analytical applications.

MariaDB, based in Redwood City, Calif., was founded in 2009 by the original developers of the popular MySQL database (which is now owned by Oracle) and MariaDB was originally built on the MySQL code base. On Feb. 1 the company announced plans to become a public company on the New York Stock Exchange sometime in the second half of 2022.
