MariaDB Comparison

MariaDB vs. MySQL and EnterpriseDB

MariaDB Enterprise Server is the leading enterprise open source database, with a feature set far above and beyond what is available from MySQL Enterprise or EnterpriseDB Postgres Platform. As the successor to MySQL, MariaDB continues to innovate with features such as distributed SQL and columnar storage while EnterpriseDB continues to lack critical functionality such as multi-writer clustering and transparent data encryption.

The table below highlights a handful of the differences between MariaDB and its open source competitors.

MariaDB vs. Oracle, Microsoft and IBM

MariaDB Enterprise Server supports the same core features as Oracle Database, Microsoft SQL Server and IBM Db2, and in some cases, even more (e.g., elastic scale out with distributed SQL). Further, while Oracle Database, IBM Db2 and MariaDB Enterprise Server all support multi-writer clustering, only MariaDB Xpand implements a shared-nothing architecture.

The table below highlights a handful of the differences between MariaDB and its proprietary competitors.
