Getting Started

This page will show you how install Ganeti on various Linux distributions. Further information about dependencies and cluster initialisation can be found in this Guide.


Debian provides packages out of the box. More recent packages can usually be found through Debian Backports.


Please use this PPA if you would like to run Ganeti on Ubuntu.


For Redhat/CentOS based systems, please head over to this repository.

Other Distributions / Source builds

You can also build Ganeti directly from source - please read these instructions carefully.

Nightly/Developer builds

We provide nightly packages for Debian and Ubuntu off the project's master branch via this repository.
These packages are only for testing purposes, do not use them in production! There is no upgrade path between nightly builds!
