Amazon Aurora vs. MariaDB SkySQL: Best AWS-Hosted DBaaS

Amazon Aurora looks like a fantastic deal at first glance: a scalable database in the cloud provided by the world’s leading cloud provider. It has a unique approach of moving much of what databases usually do to the storage layer. However, it also has some shocking limitations when you look under the covers, including write scalability, consistency and cost.

MariaDB SkySQL, on the other hand, includes high availability features, multiple database topologies, better read and write scaling, and an architectural cost advantage in terms of lower IOPS. Moreover, by becoming a MariaDB customer you support the continued development of open source database technology.

In this presentation, you will learn:
• The basics of how Aurora works, and what is included and not included
• Aurora's limitations
• SkySQL's features and offerings
• Exactly how MariaDB SkySQL and Amazon Aurora compare in terms of features, price and capabilities

  • MariaDB vs. MySQL – What's the Difference, and Why Does it Matter? Sep 21 2021 4:00 pm UTC 65 mins
    Shane Johnson, Senior Director of Product Marketing, MariaDB
    The first release of MariaDB was a fork of MySQL with additional features, performance improvements and bug fixes. However, while they both implement the MySQL protocol, MariaDB and MySQL have evolved differently – becoming separate databases.

    MariaDB has grown into a complete database solution with distributed SQL, columnar storage and temporal tables while MySQL 8.0 was a significant release with its transactional data dictionary and improved JSON support.

    In this webinar, we will discuss:
    - The similarities between MariaDB and MySQL
    - Where MariaDB and MYSQL are compatible and where they are not
    - The differentiating features and advantages
    - How you can migrate from MySQL to MariaDB
  • A Guide to Scaling Databases: Supporting High-Throughput, Low-Latency Workloads Recorded: Sep 16 2021 49 mins
    Shane Johnson, Senior Director of Product Marketing, MariaDB
    Handling a few hundred or even a few thousand transactions per second is rather easy for traditional database deployment. And scaling up will get you beyond 10,000 transactions per second. But what happens when throughput continues to rise and latency with it?

    Sharding is an option, but it can be difficult. Perhaps a different type of database is needed. NoSQL databases can provide scalability but at the cost of transactions and data integrity. There is distributed SQL, but databases like Google Spanner have their own limitations.

    So, how can you start small and incrementally reach a massive scale without changing databases and modifying applications? In this webinar, we're exploring all options for scaling MariaDB from hundreds to millions of transactions per second.

    Watch this webcast to:
    • Learn how to optimize your database for different types of workloads
    • Discover the different ways to scale out (vs. scaling up)
    • See how to scale from a single node to hundreds
  • How to Use Hybrid Data Models: JavaScript Object Notation Recorded: Aug 31 2021 68 mins
    Rob Hedgpeth, Developer Evangelist, MariaDB
    By extending relational data with JSON documents, you get schema flexibility without sacrificing transactions or data integrity. You can index and query data regardless of whether it is structured, semi-structured or both.

    In this webinar, you'll learn how you can take advantage of structured AND semi-structured data using hybrid data models. We'll explore the breadth of JSON functionality you can use to query, modify, enforce data integrity and so much more.

    Finally, we'll jump into a live coding demonstration where you'll get a firsthand look at how you can tap into the JSON capabilities within MariaDB.

    Watch this webinar to learn:
    • How to model structured and semi-structured data
    • How to index and query JSON documents with SQL
    • How to enforce the data integrity of JSON documents

  • How to Evaluate a Distributed SQL Database Recorded: Jul 20 2021 43 mins
    Andy Oliver, Senior Director, Product Marketing, MariaDB
    Distributed SQL databases are among the fastest-growing, most exciting new data and cloud computing technologies. For years IT organizations have relied on expensive, proprietary client-server relational databases based on 40-year-old technology. While client-server databases have been dependable, they were not designed for cloud computing or modern scale and availability requirements.

    However, not all distributed SQL databases are equal. Vendor claims often do not match the production experience. How do you evaluate whether a distributed SQL database is the right solution and sort out which one suits your needs?

    In this presentation, you will learn:
    • What differentiates distributed SQL databases from other database types
    • The application types and use cases that are appropriate for distributed SQL
    • Features and characteristics to consider in evaluating a distributed SQL database
    • How to design a solution evaluation and proof of concept (POC)
  • e-Commerce and Cloud Migration: Responding to Data Growth Recorded: Apr 27 2021 37 mins
    Sean Clark, CTO, Whitebox & Manjot Singh, Head of SkyServices, MariaDB
    The pandemic forced everyone to shop almost exclusively online. For Whitebox, an e-commerce technology company, they saw more and more people turn to their customers and their platform to deliver essential goods. Due to the company's rapid growth and growing data needs, Whitebox needed a new cloud database to help them reach new heights.

    After considering several cloud database options, Whitebox chose to migrate to MariaDB SkySQL on Google Cloud Platform for its scalability and access to the most knowledgeable DBAs and database engineers in the industry. With SkySQL and SkyDBAs, Whitebox saw its brands achieve record sales over the holidays, ending the year with a 700% increase in orders processed year over year.

    Join this webinar to hear from Sean Clark, Whitebox CTO, who drove the evaluation and migration personally, and Manjot Singh, Head of SkyServices at MariaDB, where they will cover:

    • Technical improvements needed for Whitebox to scale as fast as possible to meet a fast-growing customer base with increasing data needs
    • How Whitebox migrated to SkySQL, why they decided to take a crazy jump right before Black Friday, and how the MariaDB SkyDBA team helped
    • What’s next for Whitebox as they move forward with MariaDB
