Downloading rasdaman

There are several ways to get rasdaman - installing from source, installing prefabricated RPM packages, or downloading a preconfectioned Virtual Machine.

This is the download location for rasdaman community; for rasdaman enterprise contact rasdaman GmbH. (what's the difference?)

Alternative 1: Source Code

Download the source code and compile it yourself. This is the most flexible alternative, but requires some system management skills.

Alternative 2: RPM packages

Get preconfectioned packages for installation; this requires only superficial administration knowledge. RPM packages for CentOS 6 and 7 are regularly updated on every rasdaman release (built & hosted by Copr Fedora).

Alternative 3: Virtual Machine

y downloading a Virtual Machine (VM) you get a fully configured system with rasdaman installed and ready to run. This alternative does not require any system administration skills other than starting the VM and working with the rasdaman services, e.g., via the OGC standards based geo service interface.

After successful download and launch of the VM, the step-by-step installation? may be useful to get more details on how to work with rasdaman.
