This page is dedicated to users who want to install Open-Source Scalr on their own Servers (Instances). To evaluate Scalr, we fully recommend trying Hosted Scalr which does not require any up-front installation.
It is extremely difficult (read: costly) to move from self-hosted to hosted Scalr, because of the continuously changing codebase. If you are considering self-hosting Scalr, be aware that you will in all likelihood not be able to move to hosted Scalr should you later prefer not having to manage updates and upgrades.
