Introduction

Hi eZ Community,

Welcome to the monthly Product Management poll! Nicolas suggested this idea of a monthly poll. So here we go, I decided to add to my 2013 the resolution of doing a monthly poll on share.ez.no, on the eZ Community, as a way to interact more and get better feedback from eZ Publish users and developers in general. So here is my January poll, just on time before the closing of the month:

Does it support features like clustering, failover and load balancing?

Since MySQL does not have stable solutions for that (the MySQL clustering solution is complicated and not stable, the MySQL proxy solution is not stable either),  MySQL became the most critical performance bottleneck.

If MariaDB may provide perfect solution for these features, I'm definitely looking forward to that.

As far as I could lookup, MariaDB doesn't provide those features, Michael. But I'm no expert in this field.

But I could quite easily find this: https://kb.askmonty.org/en/what-is-mariadb-galera-cluster/. Looks promising, since considered RC quality, but i can't really judge, and have no idea what it's worth.

To be noted:

It seems like the decision has been made by the Fedora team on January 31.

See https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/ReplaceMySQLwithMariaDB

Interesting! This might mean that in the future REL will also move there (of course not now)

cheers

Hm, why not have both?

As far as I understood, the newest versions of eZP will support connecting to different databases if there are PDO drivers for them. And it seems like the PDO driver for mysql is working also with MariaDB.

Also, they are not so different form a database client point of view.

@Mavko: We technically already support it, cause MariaDB is just a fork of MySQL. This question is more about supporting it officially, which means adding another platform to our internal testing and support matrix.

Just to clarify, would that mean "adding" or "replacing"?
