SkySQL Merges with Makers of MariaDB


The merger aims to create a more versatile open source database and enhance services to MySQL and MariaDB users.

SkySQL announced that it has merged with Monty Program Ab, makers of the popular MariaDB open source database. According to the announcement, the newly formed company’s aim is “to develop MariaDB into a truly interoperable, NewSQL open source database.”

Patrik Sallner, who will lead the merged company as CEO, said, “By bringing on board the talented MariaDB developer team, SkySQL proposes a comprehensive partnership to leading open source database users. We are committed to develop MariaDB into the most versatile open source database. We look forward to working with the MariaDB Foundation as they engage with developers and users of MariaDB as well as with their important mission of ensuring the independence of the MariaDB project itself.”

Along with various partners and community members, SkySQL plans to invest in the development of the MariaDB server; develop solutions to let MySQL and MariaDB users effectively manage their data in the enterprise and in the cloud; and enhance services to both MySQL and MariaDB users.
