Hello, 

I want to install exasol on Cloud provider VM with RHEL or Oracle Linux OS running. Is there a way to setup Exasol in VM without using docker etc

 

Thanks

Sam

Hi Sam,

Exasol runs on its own bundled OS - a version of CentOS. So as far as I know you can't install it directly on another VM. Instead download the community edition as an ova file, that is a VM in itself which requires mounting I use Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager for this.

Hi samarath,

just a few follow-up questions, if you don´t mind:

1) when you say "Cloud provider VM" this isn´t one of the "usual suspects" ( aka. AWS / GCP / Azure ) ?
2) what is the motivation to "custom install" vs. using https://cloudtools.exasol.com/ when going for a cloud deployment ?

Regarding your question if there is a way to set up Exasol in VM w/o docker: if you were to use something that extends you
classic infrastructure into the cloud ( thinking Hybrid-something...I believe at least VMWare had something on offer in that department, other vendors probably as well ) you could install Exasol via the .ISO in the "traditional fashion" , even though your VMs would be cloud based.

Hey Samarth,

Exasol can be deployed on top of RHEL/CentOS without Docker installation.

We are working on ways (and documentation) to deploy on Linux without using Docker.

Cheers,
