Virtual Appliances are nano-sized virtual machines with Web user interfaces for deploying instant infrastructure and applications. They are Gentoo Linux based and optimized for use in VMware and Xen.
Virtual Appliances are free to download and use, and you can choose from a simple Web server, an Apache Tomcat server, a MySQL server, and a PostgreSQL server.
What's New in This Release:
· This Virtual Appliance server runs Cacti, which is a network graphing solution based on RDDTool.
· It is used to provide real-time and historical visualization of network activities.
· The Cacti Server includes onboard MySQL and PHPmyAdmin in a 40MB download package to run under any VMWare product or VirtualPC.
· As with other Virtual Appliances, this Cacti Server can use Virtual Hard drives automatically, which allows for a database of any practical size.
