A new press release reports, “MariaDB® Corporation today announced the availability of MariaDB Platform X4, a cloud-native, open source database that makes it easier than ever for developers to build modern applications using smart transactions and cloud-native data storage. Modern applications require access to vast amounts of data optimized for analytical queries and machine learning models so that transactions can be augmented with data-driven insights turning them into smart transactions. With a new breed of smart engines and significantly simplified design, MariaDB Platform X4 puts smart transactions in the hands of everyone, including tens of millions of developers who already use MariaDB for transactional-only workloads, changing the way applications are built.”
Gregory Dorman, vice president of distributed systems and analytics at MariaDB, commented, “The use of mobile devices and the rapid pace of technology has fundamentally changed how we interact with applications and what we expect from them… This creates different requirements for how these modern applications work. The trick is to add the smarts without impacting the performance of transactions, which is why we implemented a dual storage layout for data: row based for transactions and columnar for true analytics. MariaDB Platform X4 is a huge step to make modern applications easy to develop and gives everyone an opportunity to experience the benefits without a huge upfront investment.”
