The Story of our Sea Lion

Why a sea lion? That’s a question we get every now and then, most recently at FOSDEM. Here is the story: Our Founder Monty likes animals in the sea. For MySQL, he picked a dolphin, after swimming with them in the Florida Keys. For the MariaDB sea lion, there was a similar encounter. It happened […]

Testing MySQL repository packages: how we make sure they work for you

Around nine months ago, we launched the MySQL yum repositories for Enterprise Linux and Fedora, followed by apt repos for Debian and Ubuntu back in May. We’re extremely happy that the repos have proved to be a big hit with the community: the monthly number of downloads hit 100K recently and it is still growing […]

Repos and Distros: Upstream and Downstream

When we launched the official MySQL repos back in October, we wanted to achieve a number of things: First, we closed a gaping hole in our distribution on Linux. Some Linux distros do not ship all the MySQL products, and not everyone is able to or always wants to use the distro packages. And the […]

MariaDB: Improve Security with Two-Step Verification

In this primer I will show how to improve the security of your MariaDB installation by using two-step verification and how to use it from your Windows GUI client.

Let’s suppose you have your data in MariaDB, installed, say, on Ubuntu. And your users connect to it to run ad hoc queries, using some sort of a Windows GUI client. You don’t want them to write the access password on post-it notes or have it auto-entered by the client. And you don’t want anyone see the password when one of the salespersons connects to the mother ship from his laptop in the Internet café. So you decide to use the two-step verification, just like Google does, to secure the access to the data.

If you don’t know what a “two-step verification” is, see, for example, this introductory video by Google.

OLX and MariaDB

OLX, a free classifieds site, is serving up 40 million pages a day using MariaDB. Not an insignificant task.

There’s a nice write-up in the MariaDB knowledgebase with particulars. In short, the 5.2 series of MariaDB and some of the unique features of the project have made a migration easy and valuable.

It’s nice to hear such stories. Both because we like interesting sites and projects, as well as our natural interest in larger scale or larger visibility deployments. Got a story to share? Please create a KB entry, or e-mail the community team.

Get social and healthy with GlassFish
