MariaDB is a good back-end for Base. It's a drop-in replacement for MySql.
MySql is run by Oracle who run other wonderful projects such as Java. Some of the lead devs for
MySql left along with most of the community to create MariaDB so it's quite a huge project and
surprisingly mature despite being only just a tiny bit older than LO.

Subject: [MariaDB Announce] MariaDB Galera Cluster 5.5.25 Alpha now available
The MariaDB project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of
MariaDB Galera Cluster 5.5.25 Alpha. This is an Alpha release.
What is it?
* A straight merge of MariaDB 5.5.25 with Galera Cluster by Codership
* An alpha release which should not be used in production environments
* Using the Galera replication methodology, users get:
* Synchronous, multi-master replication with guaranteed data
* This solution provides both read & write scalability
The links below have more information.
MariaDB Galera Cluster is fully data-compatible with MariaDB or
MySQL, as it will work with the standard databases created by these
products. There are next to none or very minimal application changes
that are required to make the solution work.
Where can I get it?
See the links below.
The plan is for a rapid release cycle to heavily test the performance
and usage of MariaDB Galera Cluster in different environments. Please
file bugs at: https://mariadb.atlassian.net
Seppo Jaakola, CEO for Codership
"It's great that we are working closely with an upstream provider
of a MySQL-compatible binary, MariaDB. We no longer have to spend
time coding against out-of-tree changes as we're part of MariaDB.
The excellent MariaDB engineering team constantly releases new
versions of MariaDB with high quality assurance (QA). Codership
will continue to collaborate closely with the MariaDB engineering
team to improve the product and make new versions of the MariaDB
Galera Cluster available."
Michael "Monty" Widenius, CEO for Monty Program Ab
"We've received a significant amount of requests for a MariaDB
based Galera cluster and today we're proud to deliver that. We're
currently preparing ourselves and our partners for a rollout of
the GA product and related professional services via SkySQL to
run critical systems on top of MariaDB Galera Cluster."
The MariaDB Team will together with Codership work on customer requests
and demands in the areas of cluster and replication. Please contact us
if you are interested in any services we can offer around Galera,
MariaDB or MySQL. http://montyprogram.com/contact
