When running Humio yourself there are a number of different methods and considerations to take into account. You should start by examining the System Requirements to understand the envionments required. Then choose whether to install a single node, cluster, or to use a Docker or Kubernetes based configuration.
If you are getting started with Humio, we recommend running Humio as a Docker container since Docker contains the external dependencies needed, Kafka and Zookeeper. If you plan on running Humio on bare metal, please read Single Node Setup.
