Generally speaking, using software coming from a repository configured
in yum makes it a lot easier to maintain the system and keep the
packages up to date.

It is a bad habbit, especially in an enterprise environment, to deploy
software to machines in a fashion where you hardly have an overview
which software version is being installed and without a proven method to
keep the systems updated with new versions for fixing bugs and security
