Installing databases for CEM

Learn how to install a database and configure it with your Cloudera Edge Management (CEM) software to manage, control, and monitor dataflows.

The EFM Server requires a relational database. An H2 database is bundled with EFM that is used by default. While this is fine for development and test environments, for production environments, an external database is recommended.

For an external database, you can use either MySQL, MariaDB, or PostgreSQL. These topics describe how to install and configure MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MariaDB.
