This week we talk about MariaDB - explaining features, and comparing to Percona's patched MySQL and Oracle's MySQL. MariaDB is touted as "a better MySQL, not a different MySQL". MariaDB is the 2nd most popular open source database, even more popular than Postgres.
This week, we continue our discussion about MySQL and its forks. We discuss the Percona server and MariaDB.
