OS Compatibility

Overview

Before deploying MariaDB Enterprise, it is important to confirm OS compatibility.

MariaDB Enterprise includes MariaDB Enterprise Server, MariaDB MaxScale, MariaDB Enterprise ColumnStore, and MariaDB Xpand. MariaDB Enterprise and MariaDB Community Server are compatible with a range of enterprise operating systems (OS).

Business requirements should inform OS choice, and this choice should be subject to careful vetting and testing.
