MySQL is a widely spread, multi-threaded, multi-user SQL database, developed by Oracle.
Arch Linux favors MariaDB, a community-developed fork of MySQL, aiming for drop-in compatibility. Oracle's MySQL was dropped to the AUR: mysqlAUR. Another fork aiming to be fully compatible is Percona Server, available as percona-server.
The InnoDB storage engine by Oracle was also forked by Percona as XtraDB. The fork is used by both MariaDB and Percona Server.
