DC/OS Open Source


DC/OS can be installed on any cluster of physical or virtual machines.

Local Installation

For first-time users or developers looking to build services or modify DC/OS, the Vagrant installer provides a quick, free way to deploy a virtual cluster on a single machine.

Cloud Provisioning

For users deploying to the public cloud, DC/OS offers configurable cloud provisioning templates for AWS and Azure that will manage virtual machines and DC/OS installation.

DC/OS can be installed on other public and private clouds using the Datacenter Installation process, provided virtual machines and networks are created first.

Custom Installation

For new users installing to existing virtual or physical machines, on-premises or in the cloud, the GUI Installer provides a guided experience for bootstrapping a DC/OS cluster.

For advanced users installing to existing virtual or physical machines, on-premises or in the cloud, the Advanced Installer provides a scriptable, automatable interface to integrate with your preferred configuration management system.
