“How to Run Avalanche at Home” is a series produced by FireStorm, an Avalanche community member. The first episode of the series walks through how you can get Virtual Machine container software (Oracle VM VirtualBox), install Ubuntu, and run an Avalanche Node in a safe risk-free “sandbox” environment!
This is the perfect way to create an Avalanche Node and understand its functionality before committing to your dedicated node hardware! It is not recommended to run your final node on a virtual machine.
