Virtual Appliance

A Virtual Appliance is a pre-configured virtual machine ready to be used for a specific task.
It allows you to get a software solution that you can setup quickly and simply, without facing the initial installation and configuration.
Manthys Virtual Appliances rely on VMware virtualization technology, but they can run on most known virtualization environments.
