The MariaDB DBMS had made my life much easier with its fast and strong mechanism and syntax a long with its advanced features which the core developers added and improved every day.
Even though I've been working with MariaDB for over a year now, I sometimes found myself get stuck in some cases where the normal SQL statements could not help. Then I got this MariaDB Cookbook from the PacktPub. It contains a lot of tricks which can help me overcome any situation. The book has over 95 recipes to help the reader, the DB Admin, to unlock the power of MariaDB. It will show you a lot of techniques from how to set up MariaDB the right way in multiple platform to using MariaDB with modern storage engines like TokuDB or Cassandra to speed up the database.
Trust me, If you want to get the most out of MariaDB, you need to read this book.
