MariaDB Support for ESMC?

Go to solution Solved by Staj,

Are there any plans to support MariaDB for ESMC? Reliance on Oracle encumbered products is a bad idea in this day and age, open source or not, it's time to move on to avoid being caught by Oracle finding ways to screw its users.

Oh dear, nevermind, I've just done a trial run of setting up an ESMC instance and the prerequisites and dependencies for ESMC are a ridiculous joke for 2020. Very specific ODBC builds? Obsolete OpenSSL versions? Asking to support a whole different database (despite using ODBC abstraction!) is a pipedream if they can't even get these dependencies cleaned up.

I really wish we hadn't renewed given what a mess this is, would have been easier and better to migrate to different product.

OpenSSL comment is wrong, was looking at 7.0 documentation not 7.2. Needs to be a bigger banner about what version the documentation is on, not even sure how I ended up in 7.0 docs as I started in 7.2...
