Our IT Manager had a question as we are preparing to implement ArchivesSpace. Perhaps someone could answer her question (below)? Any feedback is appreciated.


Her message to me was:
Under the "implementing ArchivesSpace" page it says

"The embedded database is for testing purposes only. You should use MySQL or MariaDB for any data intended for production, including data in a test instance that you intend to move over to a production instance."

Question is - how did they address that need?

Are people using MySQL or MariaDB, which is better to tie into ArchivesSpace?
