When you install RapidMiner Server it automatically installs a repository inside the database of your choice.

And the choices are (in RapidMiner Server 6.x):

  • MySQl
  • Postgres
  • Oracle
  • Microsoft Sql Server
  • Ingres

The repository holds all the metadata, config etc for your models, so don’t forget to setup a robust database backup process!

Once the RapidMiner Server and its relevant repository is installed its a simple step to connect to the server from your RapidMiner client in the Repositories panel.
