MariaDB Corporation, provider of an open source database, is acquiring enterprise analytics database company MammothDB, expanding its global presence and engineering team.
“It’s essentially bringing their skills in analytics and cloud experience to bolster our analytics solutions as well as our overall database-as-a-service strategy,” said Michael Howard, CEO.
The move will further strengthen its modern analytics solution, MariaDB AX, and advance its larger Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) strategy, according to the company. With the new office in Sofia, Bulgaria, MariaDB will be able to continue expanding its European presence, accelerate product delivery and better support its growing global community.
MariaDB AX, first released in 2017, provides modern analytics and data warehousing that scales with existing commodity hardware on premises or across any public, private or hybrid cloud platform, unrestricted from cloud vendor lock-in.
With the addition of MammothDB’s deep bench of engineering talent, MariaDB will continue enhancing the MariaDB AX offering while providing optimized implementations for its analytic customers across every industry.
The acquisition comes on the heels of MariaDB’s recent momentum, including an investment from the European Investment Bank (EIB) and Alibaba Group totaling $54 million, and a global user conference with keynotes from customers the Development Bank of Singapore (DBS) and ServiceNow.
The company will integrate existing employees and continue to expand its team with analysts and developers, Howard explained.
“We’ll be continually moving forward in terms of excellent talent for the company to be able to support our customers across the globe,” Howard said.
