Now, MariaDB Corporation has officially announced the release of MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.4 at User and Developer Conference MariaDB OpenWorks 2019. The project is called "Restful Nights" that provides a database solution for enterprise customers.
This Enterprise version delivers the highest standards of security, performance, availability, and scalability.
Max Mether, VP of server product management at MariaDB, said,
The new version of MariaDB Server is a hardened database that transforms open source into an enterprise open source. We worked closely with our customers to add the features and quality they need to run in the most demanding production environments out-of-the-box. With MariaDB Enterprise Server, we’re focused on top-notch quality, comprehensive security, fast bug fixes and features that let our customers run at internet-scale performance without downtime.
There are also dedicated adjustments for enterprise usage scenarios found their way into the MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.4. These include an enterprise backup that is divided into non-blocking sections so that writes and schema changes can be done on the fly.
The Enterprise Server 10.4 also has the Enterprise Audit to extend the security and effectiveness of the audit mechanisms by capturing all changes to the audited configuration and accurate connection data and storing them in log files.
Full end-to-end encryption of multi-master clusters on this version also provides more security in communication between different nodes.
MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.4 also includes bi-temporal data storage and immediate schema changes.
Shane Johnson, MariaDB’s senior director of product marketing, said,
It’s one thing to experiment with open source, to evaluate it. But once you move to the stage where you’re migrating mission-critical applications to it, or you’re deploying it at the massive scale you encounter new types of challenges, not necessarily functional challenges.
The MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.4 and backported versions will be available to customers from the end of June as part of the MariaDB Platform subscription.
MariaDB has therefore extended the new Enterprise Server with functions for companies that want to run the RDBMS in large production environments. These include increased quality assurance levels and safety checks.
