MariaDB Corporation, the database company born as a result of forking the well-known open-source MySQL database, has announced it will release MariaDB Enterprise Server, a database engineered for greater reliability and stability.

The new version was announced at MariaDB OpenWorks 2019, the company's annual user and developer conference which was held in New York.

The company said MariaDB Enterprise Server had more powerful and fine-grained auditing, faster, highly reliable back-ups for large databases and end-to-end encryption for all data at rest in MariaDB clusters.

It said the MariaDB Enterprise Server was subject to rigorous quality assurance and testing for improved reliability and stability, and the default configuration was for secure production environments.

"We're seeing that our enterprise customers have very different needs from the average community user," said Max Mether, vice-president of Server Product Management, MariaDB Corporation.

"These customers are working on a completely different scale with a strong focus on stability and security. In order to be able to cater to these requirements, it is clear that we need to focus on a different solution by creating another version of MariaDB Server specifically focused on enterprise production workloads."

MariaDB Enterprise Server is fully open source and will be the default version for customers using MariaDB Platform on-premises or in the cloud.

The company will continue to develop and release MariaDB Community Server and its collaboration with the community to drive innovation.

MariaDB also announced that Mark Porter, who most recently ran the Amazon Relational Database Service, had joined as an adviser to the board.

Porter has expertise in cloud, distributed systems and database operations at scale and will aim to help MariaDB deliver and rapidly grow its database-as-a-service offering, SkySQL and integrate new distributed technology into the MariaDB Platform.
