MariaDB SkySQL Available Through Google Cloud Marketplace

MariaDB® Corporation has announced the immediate availability of MariaDB SkySQL through the Google Cloud Marketplace, the company said.

SkySQL is the first database-as-a-service (DBaaS) to unlock the full power of MariaDB Platform for transactions, analytics and both, optimized with a cloud-native Kubernetes-based architecture and backed from the source, the engineers who built the database. The availability of SkySQL on the Google Cloud Marketplace eliminates the need for additional contracts with separate terms and conditions, and provides the same ease of access and unified billing of any other product in Google Cloud´s rich ecosystem of solutions.

SkySQL with standard MariaDB support is available using pay-as-you-go credits on the Google Cloud Marketplace. Custom packaging is available for customers that need more capacity, additional support tiers or customization.

MariaDB frees companies from the costs, constraints and complexity of proprietary databases, enabling them to reinvest in what matters most — rapidly developing innovative, customer-facing applications. MariaDB uses pluggable, purpose-built storage engines to support workloads that previously required a variety of specialized databases.
