Why MariaDB?

We take a different approach to databases for the modern world. Our next generation cloud databases are relational, scale both reads and writes using distributed SQL, support any workload (transactions and analytics), and are built for all clouds (public, private, and hybrid). Our customers rely on MariaDB to power their mission critical applications at a fraction of the cost of legacy databases and with better price/performance than cloud hyperscalers can provide.

 Experience the same benefits as customers like Bandwidth, DigiCert, InfoArmor, Oppenheimer, Samsung, SelectQuote and SpendHQ – industry leaders who trust MariaDB databases to run their business.

Moving to the cloud with MariaDB Xpand in SkySQL was an easy decision for us.

TJ Hunter, software engineer and co-founder at Pronto

We ultimately chose SkySQL because it gives us the flexibility to run in any cloud and not get locked into one cloud system.

Jeremy Miller, R&D manager and senior principal electrical engineer at Certified Power

As we’ve continued expanding our cloud offerings, MariaDB has always been a great and important partner to help understand our outlook on our current database size and future scalability.
