    Product(s): MariaDB Server

    Database is well featured, fast, and tools are readily available for administration

    Overall Comment

    MariaDB is open source so some of the questions here are a bit out of scope; however, we use SkySql as a contract support house for the DB. They have had excellent input and strive to find solutions to problems.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    If you need to have active/active data center support then carefully review what types of replication modes work best for you. If there is one area where MariaDB has been a little difficult to work with, it is in there.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Again, MariaDB is open source so there this question isn't really germane. However, SkySQL has functioned well as a DB support organization

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    None.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    None.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    We are pleased with MariaDB and would likely use it again. In fact, our architecture is such that we could easily adapt to any DB platform. We did this on purpose as we were not sure how well MariaDB would work given that it was still at its nascent stage. Thus far we have seen no reason to switch
