Join Sheeri Cabral for an in-depth discussion in this video Why use MariaDB?, part of MariaDB for MySQL Users.
Why use MariaDB? MariaDB is a fork of MySQL, created by one of the original founders of MySQL. If you already use MySQL, almost all of the skills and knowledge you have apply to MariaDB. MariaDB is a drop-in replacement for MySQL, which means that if you already have a MySQL database, migrating is easy. Simply uninstall MySQL. Install MariaDB, and run MySQL upgrade. That's all there is to it.
MariaDB uses familiar terms. It calls its database demon mysqld. And has a command line client called mysql the sql syntax includes the same extensions and deviations from the standard SQL as mysql does. In fact Maria DB extends the SQL syntax even further with new features like the CONNECT storage engine and dynamic columns. MariaDB offers many new features that are not available in My SQL. If you want to use these features it would be appropriate to migrate to using MariaDB.
