MariaDB TX 3.0, the OSS Alternative to Closed Databases like Oracle, MSSQL & DB2

We have a reason to celebrate! You finally have an open-source alternative to proprietary databases like Oracle, IBM DB2 and MS SQL Server! In the past, features like temporal tables and queries, purpose-built storage engines, data masking and obfuscation with instant, invisible or compressed columns required the use of a proprietary database, but now MariaDB TX 3.0 delivers these in an enterprise open source database.

This presentation introduces the latest features available in MariaDB TX 3.0, why they were developed, how you can use them and what they mean for your business.

You will learn about:

  • Oracle compatibility, including sequences and stored procedures
  • Temporal tables and queries, as well as deployment strategies
  • The use of different storage engines for different tables
  • Protecting personal data with masking and obfuscation
  • Adding columns without ever needing to rebuild tables

As part of our celebration, we will be pouring Salmiakki Koskenkorva, a licorice-flavored black vodka that is a favorite of Finland!
