# Overview

This is a Quick Start guide to help you get a basic Prefect flow registered and running on one of our Prefect Cloud or Prefect Server orchestration layers.

Because it is a foundational part of running a flow, this guide includes an overview of what is needed to get started with Prefect Core. If you already have a solid understanding of Core and want to move onto orchestration, we recommend you go straight to set up Server or Cloud.

If you want to run a simple flow and have no need (yet) for an API or UI, then check out our core docs.

Once you've gone through the basic tutorial, we encourage you to find out more about Prefect concepts by reading Thinking Prefectly and looking at our other resources.
