MariaDB today moved to unite transactional and analytical processing in a single relational database with the announcement of the general availability of its open source MariaDB ColumnStore 1.0.

“What we’re offering is a single SQL interface for both OLTP and analytics,” says David Thompson, vice president of Engineering at MariaDB.

“MariaDB ColumnStore is the future of data warehousing,” Aziz Vahora, head of Data Management at Pinger, a specialist in mobile communication apps, added in a statement today. “ColumnStore allows us to store more data and analyze it faster. Every day, Pinger’s mobile applications process millions of text messages and phone calls. We also process more than 1.5 billion rows of logs per day. Analytic scalability and performance is critical to our business. MariaDB’s ColumnStore manages massive amounts of data and will scale with Pinger as we grow.”
