MethodDescription
Install the current official releaseInstalling the individual components of tranSMART natively is the best way to create a production installation that provides maximum flexibility. For example, you can run the front-end application on one server and the database server on another. You should have some knowledge of how to install applications in a Unix environment, and must have the appropriate privileges to do so.
Virtual Machine (VM)

A Virtual Machine (VM) is the quickest way to get an official release of tranSMART running on your system. With VirtualBox or VMWare, you can download the tranSMART VM file, install it, and have it running in relatively short time (the download does take a while). This VM contains all of the components of tranSMART pre-installed (database, web server, web app, data loading routines, etc.). You can run it on these virtualization products: VMWare or the open source VirtualBox from Oracle (which is free and available for multiple platforms).

This method is best suited for evaluation purposes, and is not recommended for production installations.
