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.

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.

In early 2020 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.
