MariaDB products can be deployed in many different topologies. The topologies on this page are representative. MariaDB products can be deployed to form other topologies, leverage advanced product capabilities, or combine the capabilities of multiple topologies.
How we describe topologies
Topologies are the arrangement of nodes and links to achieve a purpose. This documentation describes a few of the many topologies that can be deployed using MariaDB Enterprise.
To help you select the correct topology:
Each topology is named and this name is used consistently throughout the documentation.
A thumbnail diagram provides a small-scale summary of the topology's architecture.
Finally, we provide a list of the benefits of the topology.
Although multiple topologies are listed on this page, the listed topologies are not the only options. MariaDB products are flexible, configurable, and extensible, so it possible to deploy different topologies that combine the capabilities of multiple topologies listed on this page. The topologies listed on this page are primarily intended to be representative of the most commonly requested use cases.
