As InterServed is growing, we decided to migrate from MySQL to MariaDB which is a drop-in replacement that will facilitate improved database performance free of charge for all our customers.
MariaDB is a fast and easy-to-implement MySQL alternative we believe can help customers maximize website performance. In MariaDB, the default MyISAM engine is 50% faster than MySQL’s included version, while InnoDB is completely replaced by XtraDB, giving customers a threefold speed increase overall. The performance benefits of MariaDB can be observed in specific query types and applications.
If you have any questions and/or comments in regards to this message, feel free to contact InterServed support at (email@example.com),
[Update 1]: The switch to MariaDB has been completed. We are actively monitoring the server health to ensure everything went smoothly with the performed maintenance.
