Install Calyptia Core

You can deploy Calyptia Core on many different platforms including Linux, Kubernetes, or even your laptop:

General architecture overview

Calyptia Core deploys within your infrastructure, whether it's an existing Kubernetes cluster, your laptop (using a tool like kind or minikube), or a Linux server. Calyptia Core configuration is managed within our cloud console at https://core.calyptia.com (opens in a new tab).

All data is processed within your environment, virtual private cloud, or your infrastructure. The only data sent to Calyptia are configuration files and metrics.
