    Storage Engines

    MariaDB provides several powerful storage engines out-of-the-box which are not available in MySQL. For example, XtraDB, Aria, etc. To set up these storage engines for MySQL, you need to install them manually which may not be the most convenient thing.

    Performance

    MariaDB has several optimizations that tend to improve the performance as compared to MySQL. In fact, that was exactly the vision in mind when MariaDB was started by Michael Widenius, the original founder of both MySQL as well as MariaDB.

    Additional Features

    An interesting feature that MariaDB supports is that of virtual columns. These columns are capable of performing the calculations at the database level. This is extremely useful when many applications are accessing the same column and so, there is no need to write the calculation in each application – the database can do that for you. This feature isn’t available in MySQL.
