Deploy with Local Package Repository Mirrors
MariaDB Corporation provides package repositories, including the MariaDB Enterprise Repository and the MariaDB Community Repository, that can be used to install MariaDB products using the operating system's package manager. Local mirrors of the package repositories can be used for local deployments.
Local package repository mirrors provide multiple benefits:
MariaDB Corporation's official package repositories are the source for the local mirror.
Tools provided by the operating system are used to create and maintain the local mirror.
After a local mirror is created, the mirror can be be used just like the MariaDB repositories to install MariaDB products using the operating system's package manager.
If you want to deploy MariaDB Enterprise components without using a local package repository mirror, alternative deployment methods are available. Available deployment methods are component-specific.
MariaDB Enterprise components can be deployed with local package repository mirrors to support use cases, such as:
Install from the mirror on an air-gapped network that is not connected to the internet
Remove packages from mirror for versions that are not used in the local environment
Add packages to mirror for tools and clients that are used in the local environment
Automatically install missing dependencies using a package manager
The following MariaDB Enterprise components can be deployed using package repositories:
MariaDB ColumnStore 5 (included with MariaDB Community Server 10.5)
MariaDB ColumnStore 6 (included with MariaDB Community Server 10.6)
MariaDB Community Server 10.2
MariaDB Community Server 10.3
MariaDB Community Server 10.4
MariaDB Community Server 10.5 (excluding ColumnStore 5)
MariaDB Community Server 10.6 (excluding ColumnStore 6)
MariaDB Enterprise ColumnStore 5 (included with MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.5)
MariaDB Enterprise ColumnStore 6 (included with MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.6)
MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.2
MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.3
MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.4
MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.5
MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.6
MariaDB MaxScale 2.4
MariaDB MaxScale 2.5
MariaDB MaxScale 6
MariaDB Xpand Storage Engine 5.3 (included with MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.5)
MariaDB Xpand Storage Engine 6 (included with MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.6)
Operating System Package Managers
The package manager depends on the operating system:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (RHEL 7)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 (RHEL 8)
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 (SLES 12)
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 (SLES 15)
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver)
Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa)
Create a Local Repository Mirror
Creating a local mirror of the MariaDB Enterprise Repository or the MariaDB Community Repository enables you to distribute MariaDB products to your servers from a local repository you support. Secure any such repository mirror to prevent outside access.
Set up a repository mirroring tool, for example:
reposync, available at: https://access.redhat.com/solutions/23016
debmirror, available at: https://wiki.debian.org/DebianRepository/Setup#Debian_Repository_Mirroring_Tools
Secure the repository mirror to prevent outside access.
