+5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

It has arrived, a little over a month from the last beta release, is MariaDB 5.3.1. It is a bug-fix update and as always the changelog lists everything that has been fixed. The release notes list all the changes present in the 5.3-series.

Many fixes are in the optimizer updates that showed itself in MariaDB 5.3.0-beta, plus backports from the MySQL 5.6 feature preview trees. Microsoft Windows is also important to the MariaDB project so there are plenty of updates for that platform. What are you waiting for, download it now.

MariaDB now available as a hosted database via Jelastic cloud platform
+5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

About Jelastic:

Jelastic is the next generation of Java Platforms as a Service.

Unlike previous cloud platforms, Jelastic:

  • Can run any Java application and so does not require developers to change their code or get locked-into the platform,
  • Can scale any application up and down by automatically adding or removing memory and CPU units depending on the application load,
  • Takes all configuration and management worries away: developers simply specify the application stack and database options they need and Jelastic creates, configures, and maintains the environment for them
  • Supports a wide range of application server stacks including Tomcat, JBoss, Jetty, and GlassFish
  • Out of the box, allows users to get a preconfigured instance of MariaDB up and running and available to the application.

Unless you are Ashton Kutcher (@aplusk), or one of his Hollywood buddies, you don’t need to read any further. Allow me to explain…

Over the weekend, we launched our new website. This type of announcement used to be interesting in the high-tech world. I heard Kara Swisher of the WSJ’s All things D speak at a MassTLC event in May.  She admitted back in the 1990s, when the web was just getting into high gear, that a new website from an interesting company might actually get some coverage. Not anymore.

White Paper: “Scaling MySQL Deployments Efficiently” from Percona and Virident
+5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Percona was working closely with Virident on evaluating tachIOn as solution for MySQL, and as result you can find whitepaper “Scaling MySQL Deployments Efficiently Using Virident tachIOn Drives”, available from Virident website. It was done as part of our consulting practice, but all results and numbers are certified by Percona. I personally really enjoyed performance and stability provided by tachIOn card, and you actually saw bunch of benchmarks results published on our blog which proves it.
Virident tachIOn will be on the list of our recommendations for customers looking to improve performance or building high-performance solution based on MySQL.

MariaDB Draft Trademark Policy Available
+2 Vote Up -1Vote Down

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned in a post that Monty Program was working on a trademark policy for MariaDB, and we hoped to have something available for community review in early 2011.

Well, that draft is ready now. The draft is available in the MariaDB knowledgebase, and we are soliciting public feedback through January 2. During the first week of January any approved edits will be made to make a final version, and that final policy mirrored on mariadb.org and montyprogram.com.

Hopefully the intent of allowing the unhindered development of cool stuff related to MariaDB while protecting the value of the primary brand itself is made clear. Let us know what you think

Announcing TokuDB for MariaDB
+5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Tokutek is pleased to announce support for MariaDB for the first time with TokuDB v4.1.1 for MariaDB v5.1.47.

Our customers are choosing MariaDB more and more frequently for their most demanding database applications. We are delighted to help raise MariaDB performance to the next level by making TokuDB available on this new platform. One of our customers, who wishes to remain unnamed for the present time, chose MariaDB + TokuDB for a 3 TB database after having evaluated other MySQL alternatives and finding them unacceptably slow.

TokuDB continues to be the ideal choice for complex / high-volume applications that must have fast response times and that must simultaneously store and query large volumes of rapidly arriving data:

This past Monday updates in both the 5.1 and 5.2 series of MariaDB were released. It’s a pretty big deal, as some issues have been solved that affect a large number of users. You should read the release notes for MariaDB 5.1.53 and for MariaDB 5.2.4 as well as the release announcement. The annoucement contains download links from worldwide mirrors.

Speaking of downloads, the 5.2 series has seen a remarkable increase in download totals. Several orders of magnitude, in fact. That’s usually a pretty good sign, so I’ll take it as such. It hopefully means more people are using MariaDB, and when talking about such matters with

MariaDB 5.2 is released as stable
+3 Vote Up -2Vote Down

I am happy to announce that MariaDB 5.2.3 is now released as a stable release.

During the gamma period we did not receive any serious reports for issues in 5.2, so we are relatively confident that the new code is of decent quality.

You can read about the features of MariaDB 5.2 in my previous blog entry or in the fast growing MariaDB knowledgebase..

What is most interesting about MariaDB 5.2 is that most of the features came from the MariaDB/MySQL community, not from Monty Program Ab!

Without the community it would not have been possible to do a stable release so soon after the last release. Virtual columns,

I think most people will agree that one of the biggest advantages of MySQL Community Server is that it’s free.

MySQL Enterprise Backup and The Meaning of Included
+7 Vote Up -0Vote Down
During the MySQL Users Conference, Edward Screven did a keynote presentation that made many of us feel warm and fuzzy about Oracle's future plans for MySQL. If you advance 16m 25s into the presentation, it even gives something to rejoice the MySQL Enterprise customers: "Backup is now included". He didn't say much more after that. Asking around at the conference the days following this announcement, I couldn't get a straight answer about when and how would it be available for existing customers.

Now, 6 months later (give or take a couple of weeks), the MySQL Enterprise Features (http://mysql.com/products/enterprise/features.html) page has no signs of the now included MySQL Enterprise Backup (the utility previously known as InnoDB Hot Backup) and there has been no other news

If you want to know more about MySQL and MariaDB plugins read below. Our (Andrew Hutchings and mine) book MySQL 5.1 Plugins Development was just published by Packt. As far as I know it’s the first and the only book completely dedicated to MySQL Plugin API. It covers all existing in 5.1 plugin types, from Daemon to Storage Engines, and does not shun from explaining less known or poorly understood features of the plugin API. It describes newer plugin API extensions too – such as authentication plugins and recent

    Rename Maria Contest Winner
    +3 Vote Up -8Vote Down

    After two months of submissions, Monty Program employee review, community voting and Monty’s final decision, we are happy to announce that the Maria storage engine will henceforth be known as …

    Aria!

    Congratulations to Chris Tooley who suggested the name. Chris said about Aria in his submission, “Maria without the ‘M’, plus aria is a pleasant musical term.” Chris is now the proud new owner of a System 76 Meerkat net-top computer. Thanks to our good friends at System76 for providing this nifty prize.

    Hopefully, in time, “Aria” will also be a pleasing database engine term. And now we will not have the confusion between MariaDB and Maria.

    Announcing TokuDB v4.0
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Tokutek is pleased to announce immediate availability of TokuDB for MySQL, version 4.0. It is designed for continuous querying and analysis of large volumes of rapidly arriving and changing data, while maintaining full ACID properties.

    New in TokuDB v4.0 is our multi-threaded Fast Loader. Capable of utilizing all available CPU cores, the Fast Loader greatly accelerates creating a new index or initializing a database with a bulk load. On an 8 core machine, loading operations speed up by over 4x and with 16 cores the acceleration is even greater.

    Other improvements in v4.0 include:

    • Shorter Logfiles – The logs needed for ACID transactions are now considerably
      smaller. In addition to saving disk space, smaller logs means faster recovery in many cases.
    • Faster Logfile Reclamation – When a

    MariaDB 5.1.44b Linux and Solaris binaries, Ubuntu/Debian/CentOS packages, and source are now available for download.

    This is a bugfix/security release of MariaDB 5.1.44.

    From the MariaDB 5.1.44b Release Notes:

    MariaDB 5.1.44b fixes a buffer overflow that might potentially allow an authenticated user to run arbitrary code inside the server. It also has a fix for MySQL Bug #53371: “Security hole with bypassing grants using special path in db/table names.” In all other respects, it is the same as MariaDB 5.1.44.

    See the MariaDB 5.1.44 Release Notes for a summary of the differences between MariaDB 5.1.42 and MariaDB 5.1.44.
