  • Pre-Built VMWare Appliances

    VMware is an amazing product. Did you know that VMWare server is now free? More on that in my next post.

    What I want to talk about in this post is pre-built vmware appliances for download on the Internet.

    The makers of VMWare have a website where you can select what OS and what applications you what on your pre-built machine and you can just download these machines, for free, over the Internet. Here is the link-
    http://www.vmware.com/vmtn/appliances/

    Please try it out and let me know what you think. If you run across any cool vmware pre-built machines on the Internet, post them here!

    Thanks-

    Freesco is by far one of the coolest thus far and it is incredibly simple and lightweight.

    Freesco is basically a configurable "floppy router" that will boot up on x86 hardware.

    No, the name Freesco does not imply it's a version or variation of SCO, rather it stands for "Free Cisco"

    VMware's Ultimate Virtual Appliance contest with a $200,000 prize pool will ultimately bring out some very cool and genius VM appliances come August when they are judged and the prizes are awarded.

      Does it run under M$ Virtual Server??

      It sounds like a really cool application.

        I haven't tried it but I would imagine it would (maybe with a bit of tweaking for the network drivers - I'm not sure what NIC MS emulates)

          Hi Jasonboche,

          A VM that is a router sounds very useful. Especially since I could create multiple virtual NIC's to simulate a large network.

          I'll have to give this a try.

          Thanks for your post!

            Re: Pre-Built VMWare Appliances

            Hi,

            I have installed an Ubuntu 6.01 server and VMWare. I'd like to setup the SSL Explorer appliance. Trouble finding exact how-to's on this. Does the appliance install directly to the vmware server or does a virtual os need to be installed first?

            Thanks for any help in advance.

              Hi Pressley,

              I am not familiar with that application.

              However, if it is a vmware virtual appliance then you would just download it and run it inside VMware.

              Have you been able to locate this virtual appliance on the vmware virtual appliance marketplace?

              Thanks,
