MariaDB vs ToroDB: What are the differences?

Developers describe MariaDB as "An enhanced, drop-in replacement for MySQL". Started by core members of the original MySQL team, MariaDB actively works with outside developers to deliver the most featureful, stable, and sanely licensed open SQL server in the industry. MariaDB is designed as a drop-in replacement of MySQL(R) with more features, new storage engines, fewer bugs, and better performance. On the other hand, ToroDB is detailed as "Open source, document-oriented, JSON database that runs on top of PostgreSQL". ToroDB is an open source, document-oriented, JSON database that runs on top of PostgreSQL, providing storage and I/O savings and ACID semantics. ToroDB is MongoDB-compatible, so you can use Mongo clients to connect to it.

MariaDB and ToroDB can be categorized as "Databases" tools.

Some of the features offered by MariaDB are:

  • Replication
  • Insert Delayed
  • Events

On the other hand, ToroDB provides the following key features:

  • Document-oriented (JSON)
  • Store data reliabily and durably with PostgreSQL
  • Use MongoDB clients to connect to it

MariaDB and ToroDB are both open source tools. MariaDB with 2.82K GitHub stars and 864 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than ToroDB with 10 GitHub stars and 2 GitHub forks.

          MySQL
          The MySQL software delivers a very fast, multi-threaded, multi-user, and robust SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. MySQL Server is intended for mission-critical, heavy-load production systems as well as for embedding into mass-deployed software.
          Percona
          Percona delivers enterprise-class software, support, consulting and managed services for both MySQL and MongoDB across traditional and cloud-based platforms.
          Oracle
          Oracle Database is an RDBMS. An RDBMS that implements object-oriented features such as user-defined types, inheritance, and polymorphism is called an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS). Oracle Database has extended the relational model to an object-relational model, making it possible to store complex business models in a relational database.
          MongoDB
          MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.

          Aside from Redis, we use MariaDB to store long-term information like user-data and big-data like regeneration-information for our open-world servers. We extensively use the relational aspects of MariaDB in joins, nested queries and unions.

          mysql보다 mariaDB가 join면에서 우수하다는 문서를 읽었습니다. 이 부분은 저의 블로그에서도 다뤘고 저의 word press 블로그는 mysql 대신 mariaDB 를 사용합니다.

          특히 limit 기능이 pagenation 처리를 할 때 너무 직관적이고 편해서 mariaDB, mysql을 사랑합니다.

          수 백만개가 넘는 태그 키워드의 자동완성을 위해서 별도의 데이터베이스를 구축하였습니다. MariaDB 는 MySQL 을 포크한 프로젝트입니다. MySQL 과의 강력한 호환성을 지니며, 큰 튜닝 없이 강력한 성능을 보장합니다.

          MariaDB has allowed us to easily scale out our DB cluster. Also has better replication tools than MySQL
