    | tar -xz
    You can also download other versions of the binary listed on our Releases page.
  2. Copy the binary into your PATH so it's easy to execute cockroach commands from any shell:

What's Next?

Quick start a single- or multi-node cluster locally and talk to it via the built-in SQL client.

By default, each node of a CockroachDB cluster periodically shares anonymous usage details with Cockroach Labs. For an explanation of the details that get shared and how to opt-out of reporting, see Diagnostics Reporting.
