This article will guide you on steps to install #MariaDB on the #Linux operating system.
MariaDB offers more and better storage engines. NoSQL support, provided by Cassandra, allows you to run SQL and NoSQL in a single database system. MariaDB also supports TokuDB, which can handle big data for large organizations and corporate users.
As a columnar database, MariaDB ColumnStore stores table data in columns rather than rows. Data partitioning by columns is also called Vertical Partitioning.
MariaDB is a drop in place replacement for #MySQL, but you can also install it alongside MySQL.
