Red Hat will switch from Oracle MySQL to MariaDB, reports

Filed under
Software

Is Red Hat switching from Oracle's MySQL to MariaDB for its default database management system (DBMS) in its next major operating system Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)? Officially, Red Hat hasn't decided to switch to MariaDB. Unofficially, it appears to be a different story.

According to several sources close to Red Hat, MariaDB will be RHEL 7's next main DBMS. MariaDB is the MySQL clone created and maintained by Michael "Monty" Widenius, MySQL's founder. This comes after numerous stories from Red Hat Summit in June that MariaDB would replace MySQL.

On the record, Red Hat is sticking to its story that it hasn't made up its mind yet.
