This chapter helps you getting started with the Axon.ivy Engine. You will learn how to install and configure the Engine and finally, how to deploy your Axon.ivy projects. If you are a Windows user and used to install and configure software using the UI then the first section Windows is a good starting point for you. If you are an experienced Linux user and you are used to install and configure software using the console then the second section Linux is the right starting point for you. Note, that on both systems, Windows and Linux, Axon.ivy Engine can be installed and configured using the UI or the console. The Axon.ivy Engine also runs in a container environment like Docker.
