    I've tried out MariaDB specifically, the Galera Cluster many times and found it to be very lacking. The default Debian repos just seem broken and have been for a long time according to the bug reports i've read. Apart from the broken packages the fact that the documentation is very lacking and dotted all over the place has put me off. After MariaDB I moved on to Percona's implementation which comes with working packages and good documentation.

    no idea, but I know Postgresql has had JSON columns [] for a while now, so you get the benefit of 'typeless' data storage (ie a blob of JSON data) and all the benefit of relational data if you want it (as its just another column).

    MariaDB did it differently [], merging Cassandra as a storage back-end, and "dynamic columns' so you can have different columns of data per row in a table. (and you can get all the dynamic column data out as a JSON blob).

A programming language is low level when its programs require attention to the irrelevant.
