MariaDB and MaxScale has together helped us to split the RO and RW load very effectively. MariaDB is very willing to improve their product and add new features to it as and when we require. We are very impressed with the MariaDB ColumnStore that comes as part of 10.2 and we are planning for POC. The PL/SQL parser that comes with MariaDB 10.2 makes the stored procedure migration from Oracle to MariaDB seamless. With MariaDB columnstore some of our analytical workload will move to MariaDB. Some of the complex query when run on MariaDB is faster than Oracle DB. So far we have migrated 5 applications from Oracle Database to MariaDB and we found the performance is at par or better. When compared with Oracle DB, the cost to run MariaDB is 70% cheaper..... Lastly the collaboration that we have with MariaDB foundation and MariaDB support is very fruitful. Response time from them is acceptable.

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.
