How do you want to use nio?

The quickest way to use nio is in the cloud. A nio-managed cloud system does not require any installation and comes with a Pubkeeper server.

Most of the time, Pubkeeper runs invisibly in the background. However, for more customizable use cases, you can sign up for a license that includes a downloadable Pubkeeper server.

Here are some example configurations of nio and Pubkeeper ranked from simplest to the most customizable:
