Hardware Compatibility

The third step in deploying MariaDB Platform is to confirm hardware compatibility.

MariaDB Platform includes MariaDB Enterprise Server, MariaDB MaxScale, and MariaDB ColumnStore. MariaDB Platform can run from a range of platforms, systems, and environments.

Business requirements should inform choice of platform, systems, and environments. These choices should be subject to careful vetting and testing.

Physical and Cloud Environments

MariaDB Platform can be run from single or multiple physical locations.

MariaDB Platform operates on hardware and cloud platforms including bare metal, virtualization, containers, and cloud. Cloud deployment options include MariaDB SkySQL.

MariaDB Platform operates in physical environments including:

  • On-premises (on-prem)

  • Colocated (colo)

  • Private Cloud

  • Public Cloud

  • Hybridized

Hardware Architecture

The MariaDB Engineering Policy defines the hardware architectures supported by MariaDB products.

As of MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.4.10-4 (2019-11-18), MariaDB Enterprise Server is supported on the following hardware architectures:

  • x86-64

The next step in deploying MariaDB Platform is to select a deployment method.
