MariaDB Platform X3

MariaDB Platform X3

Report Author(s): Philip Howard


MariaDB Platform X3 is an offering that combines the transactional capabilities of MariaDB TX with the analytic functionality provided by the massively parallel, shared-nothing environment provided by MariaDB AX.

MariaDB Platform X3 takes a slightly different approach to supporting hybrid transactional and analytic processing compared to the traditional relational behemoths (Oracle, IBM, Microsoft and so on) as well the relational offerings from cloud vendors such as Amazon. From an architectural perspective, MariaDB does not store both row and column data on the same server. Moreover, it uses distributed storage for analytics. Going beyond that, MariaDB is an open source product, that scales horizontally, and is – in all probability – going to cost you a whole lot less money. Moreover, unlike Amazon, the company supports hybrid cloud deployments.
