Installation Tips

If you can use hopsworks-ai to run Hopsworks, that is our recommended approach. It is a managed platform, where we manage upgrades, backups, and provisioning. If you are on GCP or Azure, and you can use GCP tools or AZ tools, respectively, then jump to Hopsworks Cloud Installer. Otherwise, the recommended way to install Hopsworks is to use the Hopsworks Installer script. A more manual way to install Hopsworks is to use Karamel. Karamel is used to upgrade manually installed Hopsworks clusters.
