AvalancheGo Installer is a shell (bash) script that installs AvalancheGo on any Linux computer. This script sets up full, running node in a matter of minutes with minimal user input required. This is convenient if you want to run the node as a service on a standalone Linux installation, for example to set up a (Subnet) validator, use the node as a private RPC server and similar uses. It also makes upgrading or reinstalling the nodes easy.
If you want to run a node in a more complex environment, like in a docker or Kubernetes container, or as a part of an installation orchestrated using a tool like Terraform, this installer probably won't fit your purposes. See here for how to run AvalancheGo in a Docker container.
