    jdjsolano, I will add a +1 vote to support MariaDB for the API Portal as we currently don't have it on the roadmap. I am the Product Manager for the API Portal. Please ping me if you want to chat about this or other features, my email is guillermo.tellez@ca.com

    Hi jdjsolano, support for MariaDB is currently under consideration for the Gateway, and is on the backlog, however it is not currently planned into a specific Gateway release.  We are currently investigating the feasibility of supporting different databases, or even different ways of storing data, for future releases of the Gateway.

     

    Is there a specific driver for MariaDB support for your environment?

     

    Thanks,

    Aaron

    Hi fliaa01, gtellez, I would like to register our support for MariaDB as a supported database across the API Management suite.  We see it as a cost effective database solution, with AWS support, for low to medium throughput environments.  Also, I guess given its heritage, it's not too much of a stretch from MySQL.

    Hi fliaa01

    MariaDB is a standard in our environment, we would like to deploy gateway and portal without having too many different variant of the Monty Widenius db's.

    Hi

     

    CentOS 7 prefers MariaDB, that is a fork of MySQL managed by the original MySQL developers and designed as a replacement for MySQL. If you run yum install mysql on CentOS 7, it is MariaDB that is installed rather than MySQL. 

     

    If you're wondering about MySQL vs. MariaDB, MariaDB will generally work seamlessly in place of MySQL, so unless thereis a specific use-case for using MySQL, it will be good to support also MariaDB.

     

    best regards, Roberto

    Currently running 9.3CR03 under MariaDB since 2017 on one of our test system.

    Our OpenShift deployment 9.4 API Gateway in container uses a 3 nodes MariaDB Galera cluster. Works like a charm.

    Added "mariadb-java-client-2.3.0.jar" as Driver for external database usage also as mandatory for some functions/procedures handling.

    Should be definitely supported, as some other reported, MariaDB comes as a standard on 'modern' CentOS/RHEL systems.

    This should be officially supported. Galera has been proven as a very stable solution.
