What is a Local Installation? #

A local installation means that you will allocate resources from your local machine (e.g., your laptop) to spin up a Kubernetes cluster to run Pachyderm. This installation method is not for a production setup, but is great for personal use, testing, and product exploration.

Which Guide Should I Use? #

Both the Docker Desktop and Minikube installation guides support MacOS, Windows, and Linux. If this is your first time using Kubernetes, try Docker Desktop — if you are experienced with Kubernetes, you can deploy using a variety of solutions not listed here (KinD, Rancher Desktop, Podman, etc.).
