Deploy with Package Repositories

Overview

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.

Package repositories provide multiple benefits:

  • Package repositories allow package managers to download and install software packages.

  • YUM repositories distribute RPM (.rpm) files for CentOS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), and Rocky Linux.

  • ZYpp repositories distribute RPM (.rpm) files for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES).

  • APT repositories distribute DEB (.deb) files for Debian and Ubuntu.

If you want to deploy MariaDB database products without using a package repository, alternative deployment methods are available. Available deployment methods are component-specific.
