Software developers need tools that are both powerful and easy to install. ActiveDB as the operating system for the digital twin fulfills exactly these requirements. In this article and the accompanying video, we show you how to set up ActiveDB quickly and effortlessly – whether on a Raspberry Pi, on-premise in a Kubernetes cluster or in a cloud environment.


After reading this article, you will know:

  • The most commonly used installation methods for ActiveDB
  • The advantages of these installation methods
  • The versatility of ActiveDB for different environments


Installation with Docker Compose

For smaller systems or individual instances, installing ActiveDB with Docker Compose is the optimal choice. This method is characterized by its simplicity and efficiency, which makes it particularly suitable for smaller projects or development environments.

Docker Compose simplifies the installation process by bringing the ActiveDB components together in a single, coordinated step. This reduces the complexity of the setup and allows ActiveDB to be up and running quickly and without extensive configuration work.

Using Docker Compose is ideal for users looking for a quick, straightforward solution to run ActiveDB on a single host or in a small environment. It provides a simple and accessible way to set up and manage ActiveDB without the need for advanced infrastructure knowledge.


Efficient management with ActiveDB as a Helm Chart

For larger systems or clusters, installing ActiveDB as a Helm Chart in Kubernetes offers significant advantages over Docker Compose, particularly in the areas of management and monitoring. This method standardizes and simplifies the installation process and is suitable for both cloud and on-premise Kubernetes clusters.

By using Helm Charts in Kubernetes, ActiveDB benefits from improved monitoring and efficient management. Kubernetes’ advanced monitoring tools enable detailed monitoring of database performance and health, which is critical when scaling and managing ActiveDB in complex environments.



In summary, ActiveDB offers a highly flexible and user-friendly installation for a variety of deployment options. Whether you need a quick setup on a single Raspberry Pi or a robust, scalable installation in a cloud-based or on-premise Kubernetes cluster, ActiveDB adapts to your requirements.

Simple installation using Docker Compose is ideal for smaller projects or development environments, while advanced integration with Kubernetes via Helm Charts supports larger, more complex use cases. Both methods emphasize the accessibility and efficiency of ActiveDB while adapting to different environments and user needs.

ActiveDB thus combines simplicity in installation with the ability to adapt to different technical requirements. This makes it an excellent choice for a wide range of applications and users, from the digitization of small processes to the automation of entire production lines.
