MariaDB

MariaDB is very powerful and this is the default database in replacement of MySQL in most operating system distributions.

Whist its the stock package in the repository it is listing the version of 10.1. The latest version is 10.2, we would need to obtain this manually, we will install it for the latest Debian 9 (Stretch) operating system.
