MariaDB targets big data analytics market with ColumnStore

Thor Olavsrud | April 6, 2016
The relational database company's upcoming MariaDB ColumnStore is a columnar storage engine for massively parallel distributed query execution and data loading, supporting use cases ranging from real-time to batch to algorithmic.

MariaDB also announced the addition of new data streaming capability to MariaDB MaxScale intended to simplify real-time data propagation to external data lakes or data warehouses. This will allow the replication of transactions in MariaDB in real-time to Hadoop or any other data store. As a result, MaxScale and MariaDB can be configured to handle replication in mission-critical applications without affecting performance while including all necessary metadata with no per-value overhead.

"Big data analytics is a priority for businesses that need to scale their analytics capabilities and extract greater value from growing data volumes," MariaDB CTO Michael "Monty" Widenius said in a statement today. "MariaDB ColumnStore and MariaDB MaxScale with data streaming provide a holistic approach to increasingly demanding analytical processing tasks. Our approach is aimed at any company who does not want to pay big for big data. For the MariaDB/MySQL community, MariaDB ColumnStore is the first complete data warehouse solution."
