Hello 👋, I am running Prefect-1 on a distant cluster. My Flows are working well and I can monitor them from the Prefect Cloud. Though, I would like to try doing it using a Prefect server. The issue is that I do not have docker on my cluster (and I cannot install it) so I cannot start a server there. I was wondering if it would be possible to run a prefect server on my local machine and connect to a running agent on my cluster through ssh tunnel or similar? If anyone has ever done it I would really appreciate some pointers or an example on how to setup something like that. Thanks 🙂

I'd recommend using Prefect 2.0 - you can run the entire orchestration layer without Docker

Thank you for your answer. I was already considering switching to prefect 2.0, I guess this is the last motivation I needed.
