MySQL is the world's most widely used open-source relational database management system (RDBMS) that runs as a server providing multi-user access to a number of databases. It is named after MySQL co-founder Michael Widenius's daughter, My.
MHA (Master High Availability) is an automated master failover and slave promotion software package that drops in and runs on top of existing MySQL and MariaDB installations. It uses standard MySQL or MariaDB replication both asynchronous and semi-synchronous.
MySQL Proxy sits between your client and MySQL server(s) that can monitor, analyze or transform their communication. Its flexibility allows for a wide variety of uses, including load balancing; failover; query analysis; query filtering and modification; and many more.
MySQL Cluster meets the needs of next-generation web and telecommunications database challenges. It is a write-scalable, real-time, ACID-compliant transactional database. It is open source and extensively deployed providing 99.999% availability.
MariaDB is the open source fork of the popular MySQL relational database. The MariaDB community has grown exponentially in the recent years as it has become the default relational database in many Linux distributions and has been actively promoted by some of the world's largest global corporations.
MySQL is the world's most popular SQL database but, in the past, other database solutions had to be selected when there was a requirement to record user access to the server and tables because of auditing regulations.
To address this issue in MySQL, SkySQL has developed the MariaDB Audit Plugin for MySQL. This plugin is currently in beta.
MariaDB Galera Cluster provides synchronous multi-master replication. Using MariaDB Galera Cluster means that your data is safer than traditional master-slave replication because it is replicated immediately as part of the commit, without any delay. Also, in traditional master-slave replication you can do read-only scale-out, but with MariaDB Galera Cluster you can read and write to any node. This makes life easier for application developers, because they don't need to separate read-only transactions and write transactions.
As part of our ongoing efforts to stimulate and support innovation, SkySQL has developed the MariaDB Client Libraries for Java Applications and the MariaDB Client Libraries for C available for download under the LGPL licence.
