Secured MariaDB Server

Secured MariaDB

MariaDB is an open-source MySQL database compatible database and the Kurian AMI has the latest stable release of MariaDB installed for the targeted Linux platform. The installation is secured by running mysql_secure_installation.


  • Latest, stable release with OS patches.
  • Secured installation.

How It Works

The MariaDB database server is ready for use when an EC2 instance is spun from this AMI. An ideal resource to use with automated infrastructure provisioning when a MariaDB or MySQL database is needed as part of the cluster and available for use immediately.

Unsupported Configurations

Kurian releases latest, stable versions of open source software on popular Linux distributions. If you need a configuration that is not currently available in marketplace, send us your requirements to Please include the following info in the email:

  • Name of Software to be on the AMI with version numbers.
  • Linux distribution and the version.
  • The EC2 instance type you plan to spin up from the AMI (optional).


  • Besides running mysql_secure_installation for securing the database, no configuration is done.
  • SSH into the EC2 instance running the database as user specific to the operating system. See Remote Access to EC2 Node below to see the users listed.
  • Connect to the database as root using instance id as the password. If that doesn’t work try the password dummypass. Change password if needed.


Using the related MariaDB documentation migrate old databases to the newly created instance.
