Starting a cluster is annoying. It’s not overly hard, but you have to remember the statements. It would be a lot better if the startup script would say ‘cannot attach to cluster, start a new one?’ or something similar. Despite the speed, we have had a couple of crashes where we could not startup the server. This has never happened to our MySQL servers, so that was a surprise.
This database works well with a large amount of data and it can execute large SQL queries with ease. And the accuracy and speed is high compared to other databases. Also the security of this database is high.
It has a very similar queue style and command styling to MySQL. But with additional functions. It is easy to adapt to and I can export or import any database in MariaDB software. It also has a lot of storage type which we definitely need it.
For starters, what strikes me most about MariaDB is that it is open source. It is excellent that it has a large community of users that contribute to its development. On the other hand, it has GIS features which facilitates location data queries. In addition, it has excellent accessories such as Connect and Spider to improve storage. I can also highlight its simplicity to migrate, being a replacement for MySQL.
I ran into some configuration problems when trying to configure it on my VPS server. It doesn’t have lots of tutorials like others, but you can always find a way around it. You cannot get personalized support for this software like others, because it is a community-based DB software. Less update and bug fixing sometimes make words really hard.
