GlowHost offers MariaDB support with all packages. What is MariaDB? MariaDB is a drop-in replacement for MySQL. The MariaDB Foundation works closely and cooperatively with the largest community of users and developers in the true spirit of free and open source software, and releases software in a manner that balances predictability with reliability.
In addition to the standard MyISAM, BLACKHOLE, CSV, MEMORY, ARCHIVE, and MERGE storage engines, many others are also included with MariaDB. MariDB also offers a lot of optimizer enhancements, faster and safer replication, and improved performance of character set conversions. More testing being done by the open source community makes this one of the strongest database utilities around.
The structure of the MariaDB Foundation underpins everything done within MariaDB. No one person or company drives priorities, code, or shapes the community. The MariaDB Foundation uses technical and legal means to guarantee the technology used by the world's largest database community will continue to be free in every sense.
I have been with GlowHost since 2008. Their customer service is rocks. I started with a shared server, and now have three dedicated servers. I am a programmer in my mid 30's with above average computer and hosting experience. GlowHost consistently destroyed the competition on their technical skills, so I got rid of all of my other hosting accounts and moved everything here. Thank you GH and I give you an A+ recommendation for your great service.
