On what platforms does Butler Auth run?

If you have access to or can set up a Docker runtime environment, this is by far the preferred way of running Butler Auth.

Installation is less error prone compared to installing Butler Auth as a Node.js app, you get all the benefits from the Docker ecosystem (monitoring of running containers etc), and upgrades to future Butler Auth ersions become trivial.

If you have access to a Kubernetes cluster, that is usually an even better option than Docker. Kubernetes can be daunting when first approached, but will give you superb reliability, failover and restarts if a server goes down or becomes unresponsive etc.

Rancher’s K3s is a great way to get started with Kubnernetes. Fully featured, well supported and a vibrant developer community.
