10 Cool Products From 10 Hot Startups

Rick Whiting

Some of the most innovative IT products are developed by startup companies. Here’s a look at 10 ground-breaking products from companies that made the 2020 CRN Emerging vendors list.

MariaDB

Top Executive: Michael Howard, CEO

Product: SkySQL

MariaDB is the company behind the popular MariaDB database, a community-developed, commercially supported offshoot of the MySQL relational database. Earlier this year MariaDB launched SkySQL, a fully managed cloud Database-as-a-Service for both transactional and business analytics tasks.

SkySQL Foundation, the SkySQL service’s core platform, incorporates the MariaDB Enterprise Server, MariaDB ColumnStore columnar storage engine and MariaDB MaxScale database proxy. SkySQL is architected on Kubernetes and uses a ServiceNow-based portal for inventory, configuration and workflow management.

MariaDB recently expanded SkySQL’s capabilities with SkySQL Power, which seeks to overcome the customization limitations of many SaaS systems and applications. SkySQL Power provides a “power tier” of options, features and extensions to configure database instance types to maximize system efficiency, lower total cost of ownership and meet specific enterprise security, high availability or disaster recovery requirements.
