Quick start

EventStoreDB can run as a single node or as a highly-available cluster. For the cluster deployment, you'd need three server nodes.

The installation procedure consists of the following steps:

  • Create a configuration file for each cluster node
  • Obtain SSL certificates, either signed by a trusted authority, or self-signed
  • Install EventStoreDB on each node using one of the available methods
  • Copy the configuration files and SSL certificates to each node
  • Start the EventStoreDB service on each node
  • Check the cluster status using the Admin UI on any node
