About the author:
Daniel Bartholomew has been using databases since 1998. He is a frequent contributor to various magazines, including The Linux Journal, Linux Pro, Ubuntu, User, and Tux. He has been involved with the MariaDB project since it began in early 2009. He currently works for SkySQL and splits his time between MariaDB documentation and maintaining the bits and pieces that keep the MariaDB project running smoothly. In addition to his day-to-day responsibilities, he also serves as the MariaDB release coordinator and has been deeply involved with almost every MariaDB release.

MariaDB is a community-developed fork of the MySQL relational database management system, the impetus being the community maintenance of its free status under the GNU GPL. Being a fork of a leading open source software system, it is notable for being led by its original developers and triggered by concerns over direction by an acquiring commercial company, Oracle.

MariaDB Cookbook unlocks the advanced features of MariaDB's capabilities, including new storage engines, performance enhancing optimizations, and other advanced abilities. This Cookbook helps backend enterprise, cloud, or embedded or mobile apps with a fast, free, open source, and familiar SQL database.
The book begins with installing MariaDB and configuring it to unlock powerful optimizations that can speed up certain queries exponentially. The book then moves on to using the extra storage engines included with MariaDB, such as TokuDB and the CONNECT engine. With those mastered, the book branches out from single- to multi-server installations, diving into MariaDB's clustering and replication features, learning how to efficiently search and index data, work with NoSQL-style data, and connect MariaDB with a Cassandra cluster.
