MySQL and MariaDB Database Consulting

MySQL and MariaDB are still the most used databases in the world. With everything we see on the web about them, it is important to be well informed to maximize the performance of MySQL / MariaDB.

Indeed, all the information available is not necessarily adapted to your situation. Instead of blindly following any suggestion, it is better to opt for a consulting service tailored to your use case.

Did you know ?

MySQL, an open source relational database management system (RDBMS), was deployed in May 1995, then purchased by Oracle in April 2009. From there was born the MariaDB fork, whose objective was to keep the free project under general public license (GPL).
MySQL uses the Structured Query Language (SQL) which is the most popular for managing content within a database.
