MariaDB frees companies from the costs, constraints and complexity of proprietary databases, enabling them to reinvest in what matters most – developing innovative, customer-facing applications rapidly. Trusted by organizations like Deutsche Bank, DBS Bank, Nasdaq, Red Hat, ServiceNow, Verizon and Walgreens – MariaDB meets the same core requirements as proprietary databases, but at a fraction of the cost.
