How to install libboost-devel on CentOS 6.3?

I have tried the following command:

yum install libboost-devel


Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: mirror.ellogroup.com
 * extras: mirror.ellogroup.com
 * updates: mirror.ellogroup.com
Setting up Install Process
No package libboost-devel available.
Error: Nothing to do

You'll want to install the boost-devel package.

Package description: boost-devel.x86_64 : The Boost C++ headers and shared development libraries

yum install boost-devel
