Abstract
MySQL 8 and MariaDB 10.5 are the latest major MySQL and MariaDB versions. While MariaDB started by being a slightly different MySQL variant, it has since grown into a very different database platform which grows more different with each release.
In this presentation, we will look into the differences between MySQL and MariaDB in core areas such as SQL features, query optimization, replication, storage engines, and security. We will also discuss the unique features and capabilities
 

Modern solutions for modern database load: improvements in the latest MariaDB versions

Speaker: Sveta Smirnova

Date and time
Duration: 30 minutes
Paris: Tuesday 15 September, 11.50 – 12.30 CEST (UTC +2)

Abstract
MariaDB is famous for working well in high-performance environments. But our view of what to call high-performance changes over time. Every year we get faster data transfer speed; more devices connected to the Internet; more users and, as a result, more data.
Challenges, which developers have to solve, are getting harder. This session shows what engineers do to keep the product up to date, focusing on MariaDB improvements that make it different from its predecessor, MySQL.
 

How to migrate from MySQL to MariaDB without tears

Abstract
MariaDB is a drop-in replacement for MySQL. Initial migration is simple: start MariaDB over the old MySQL datadir.
Later your application may notice that some features work differently than with MySQL. These are MariaDB improvements, so this is good and, likely the reason you migrated.
In this session, I will focus on the differences affecting application performance and behavior. In particular, features sharing the same name, but working differently.
