MariaDB and eperi at M17

MariaDB and eperi – the close partnership between both stands for reliable data security. At the M17 user conference in New York, eperi presented its solutions to the MariaDB community.

For more than 5 years, eperi has cooperated with MariaDB. During this time, it has become the fastest growing database management system in the world: Among others, Google, Wikipedia, Mozilla as well as the linux distributions Arch Linux, Fedora, openSUSE and Slackware use it.

As a longtime supporter of the project, eperi also presented itself at M17 in New York – MariaDB’s annual user conference, where MariaDB founder Michael “Monty” Widenius (right) visited eperi CEO and Founder Elmar Eperiesi-Beck (middle) and Senior Vice President Ravi Pather (left). Because of the close cooperation, Monty and eperi had already visited each other several times before, like in 2014, when he met with eperi in Darmstadt.

eperi, being a strong proponent of Open Source solutions, has made central contributions to MariaDB data security projects in the past years. The Darmstadt-based enterprise help – in cooperation with Google – in the development of the MariaDB standard encryption solution. The free plug-in has been integrated into MariaDB since version 10.1. The commercial eperi Gateway Plug-in allows for more advanced encryption, tokenisation and key management options, even outside of the database.
