MAAS can be installed via:

  • Snaps - Self-contained packages that are fast and easy for proof-of-concept and production deployments.

Either way, the installation process is simple and user-friendly, taking just a few minutes. Follow our step-by-step Installation Guide to get up and running.


If you already have an older MAAS deployment, upgrading to the latest version is seamless. There’s no complicated migration process - simply follow our Upgrade guide to update quickly and easily.
