MariaDB is based on the MySQL database and is a true, open source drop-in replacement
Works like the MySQL database with additional features
MariaDB® is an enhanced, backward compatible database server that offers drop-in replacement functionality for the MySQL® database.
MariaDB is built by some of the original authors of the MySQL database, with assistance from the broader community of open source software developers. In addition to the core functionality of the MySQL database, MariaDB offers a rich set of feature enhancements including alternate storage engines, server optimizations, and patches.
MariaDB is included in the SkySQL Enterprise subscription, a comprehensive offering of server software, production support and monitoring tools for any version of the MySQL® database.
