Installing Using ZIP Archive

GridGain is available in three editions: Community Edition (CE), Enterprise Edition (EE) and Ultimate Edition (UE). For this example, we’ll use the GridGain CE, which is distributed as binary, docker, and cloud images, and via RPM/DEB. This chapter explains how to install the GridGain CE binary distribution.

To get started with the GridGain CE binary distribution:

  1. Download the GridGain binary as a zip archive.

  2. Unzip the zip archive into the installation folder in your system.

  3. Move the ignite-rest-http folder from {gridgain}/libs/optional to {gridgain}/libs to enable the Ignite REST library for the cluster. The library is used by GridGain Web Console for cluster management and monitoring needs.

  4. (Optional) Enable required modules.

  5. (Optional) Set the IGNITE_HOME environment variable or Windows PATH to point to the installation folder and make sure there is no trailing / (or \ for Windows) in the path.
