h1. Installing a Development Arvados Instance
Arvados is primarily intended as a system to be run on large server clusters. For developers, we have provided a process to build and deploy the Arvados system in "Docker containers":https://www.docker.io/ on a single machine.
# *Install the Arvados servers in Docker containers.* The full process of configuring and building a Docker instance of Arvados is documented in the "docker/README.md":https://github.com/curoverse/arvados/blob/master/docker/README.md file in the source distribution.
# *Install the client SDKs.* After following those instructions, install the client libraries on your workstation as well:
## *RVM* -- if you do not already have RVM installed on your workstation, install it now.
### @sudo apt-get install curl libcurl3 libcurl3-gnutls libcurl4-openssl-dev@
### @sudo sh -c 'curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable'@
### @source /etc/profile.d/rvm.sh@
## Install the arvados-cli gem:
### @sudo gem install arvados-cli@
# *Install the Warehouse client library for Perl.* Running Crunch jobs locally requires having the Warehouse SDK for Perl installed locally. Follow the instructions at http://factories.freelogy.org/ under "Client Library Installation."
Once you have installed the servers and started them with @arvdock start@, and installed the client libraries, you should be able to work through the "user tutorials":http://doc.arvados.org/user/ to upload data into Arvados and run simple Crunch jobs in debug mode.
