Operations teams (SRE, PE, DevOps, etc.) are being asked to take a more active role in database provisioning and scaling. Much of the MongoDB material available online is from one, two, three or even five years ago (or more). Finding useful content online that is helpful in breaking through the current state of MongoDB maturity and stability can be challenging with all this outdated material exists -- especially when MongoDB is...

Are they syntactically similar? Where do these two query languages differ? Why would I use one over the other?

MariaDB is on the path of gradually diverging from MySQL. One obvious example is the internal data dictionary currently under development for MySQL 8. This is a major change to the way metadata is stored and used within the server, and MariaDB doesn’t have an equivalent feature. Implementing this feature could mark the...
