As part of the open-source packages IBM has released for IBM i, the PostgreSQL and MariaDB databases are two gems that stand out. The software installs in minutes on IBM i via the Yum-based Open Source Package Management process that is part of IBM Access Client Solutions (ACS). This means that MySQL/MariaDB and PostgreSQL are now fully embraced as a valid IBM i database for storing data for your PHP, Python, Node and Java applications. No need to look elsewhere to host your open-source applications than IBM i using DB2 and open-source data natively.

Attend this session to see how to quickly get started installing and using MariaDB and PostgreSQL natively on IBM i. We’ll also cover some valid application development use cases.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn the benefits of hosting MariaDB and PostgreSQL natively on IBM i
2. See how quickly MariaDB and PostgreSQL can be deployed on IBM i
3. Learn the development pattern for integrating MariaDB and PostgreSQL with your apps
