This section describes VAST from an operator perspective. We cover the different stages of the setup process that ultimately yield a running VAST instance. You have several options to enter the setup pipeline, based on what intermediate artifact you would like to begin with.
Want hands-on experience with VAST? Then continue with a quick tour below. 👇
To get up and running quickly, we recommend using the static binary or Docker image:
- Static Binary
If you have a Linux at your fingertips, just download and extract our package with a static binary:
mkdir -p /opt/vast
tar xzf vast-linux-static.tar.gz -C /opt/vast
export PATH="/opt/vast/bin:$PATH" # based on your shell, e.g., fish_add_path /opt/vast/bin
For a container deployment, use our official Docker image:
docker pull tenzir/vast
mkdir -p /tmp/db # persistent state
docker run -dt --name=vast --rm -p 5158:5158 -v /tmp/db:/var/lib/vast \
Now that you have running VAST node, you can start ingesting data.
