Talking about installing DataTurbine is a bit misleading. Really, in terms of software, provided that Java is already installed on your system, DataTurbine runs without any installation.
What people really mean when talking about installing DataTurbine is the process of deploying the various pieces across your system in a way that meets your application.
Before jumping in and getting your hands dirty we recommend you read through the introduction to DataTurbine and have a firm understanding of the basic elements of Data Turbine (servers, source, and sinks). We also recommend that first time users go through the First Time Users install procedure before downloading the full DataTurbine package.
