1-click SciDB installation on Ubuntu Linux?


#1

The SciDB Installation Guide says “Enterprise Installation” and the install scripts covers only clusters. I don’t have an Enterprise license. I’m not going to use it on a cluster at this point. It is for local testing purposes only. I want to build a VM with Ubuntu (or Centos if needed). Most forum topics on Ubuntu cite a lot of issues that need to be resolved when installing on Ubuntu.

It appears that the only version for which Paradigm provides installation scripts that work that
is the Enterprise license, i.e., from the installation manual:

“The linchpin of the SciDB installation procedure is the Cluster Install script (https://
downloads.paradigm4.com/enterprise/15.7/cluster_install/cluster_install.html), available only in the
Enterprise Edition.
The Cluster Install link gives you three choices. You can download a .tar file, a .deb file, or a .rpm file.
• The Configurator (https://downloads.paradigm4.com/enterprise/15.7/config.15.7.html) is a web
application that generates a SciDB config.ini file based on input you provide. It is available only in the
Enterprise Edition.”

Is a clean port and non-clustered installation script available for Ubuntu 14 yet? Ubuntu latest desktop release is 15.10.

The installation manual says “SciDB v15.7 supports both Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04. The commands in this section show how to install SciDB Enterprise Edition on Ubuntu 12.04.”, but in the forums a Paradigm support person says that v14 Ubuntu is not supported. What is the truth here? Is v14 Ubuntu supported or not with an installation script?

Which version and subversion of Ubuntu is best to use for a clean installation SciDB 15.7 with no issues, i.e., an easy 1-click or command line installation without too much futzing around with system configuration? I’ll be installing in VMware running on 64-bit hardware. There are many issues cited in the forums if people don’t use a specific version of Ubuntu with a specific version of Ubuntu.

Thanks.

Richard, I have built a docker for scidb 15.7. that gives you an instant installation
https://hub.docker.com/u/cerbo/

it covers scenarios of single-node scidb, multi-node cluster and client tools.
