MariaDB adds Big Data analytics support with ColumnStore 1.0

MariaDB Corp., the database company that sells a commercial version of the open-source MySQL database of the same name, is attempting to unite transactional and analytic processing in a single front end to deliver enterprise-grade, high-performance Big Data analytics.

The company has just announced its latest new feature, MariaDB ColumnStore, which it claims will lower the cost of ownership, deliver better price performance, easier analytics and enable faster, more efficient queries.

“Data warehouses are famously expensive and complex – requiring proprietary hardware which makes it nearly impossible to deploy on the cloud, or on commodity hardware,” said David Thompson, vice-president of engineering at MariaDB. “MariaDB ColumnStore makes data analytics more accessible, on premise, in the cloud or in a hybrid deployment.”

MariaDB ColumnStore is an effort by the company to widen its audience, and it’s doing so by offering a much cheaper alternative to popular analytics databases like Terdata or Vertica.

ColumnStore isn’t a brand new project. MariaDB first announced it in April, revealing that it’s a port of the existing InfiniDB, whose parent company has now gone defunct. MariaDB took over that project in 2015, where it continued to support its customer base. It was only then that MariaDB saw how InfiniDB’s column-focused technology could be used to add OLAP (Online Analytical Processing) capabilities to its OLTP (Online Transaction Processing)-based MySQL database.
