TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Saturday, 5 November 2011 | posted in , | 1 comments

The Turnkey Linux Virtual Appliance Library is an open source project developing a free virtual appliance library of pre-packaged servers based on Ubuntu that can be deployed on virtual machines, in cloud computing infrastructures or installed in physical computers.

Each virtual appliance is a ready-to-use solution that's optimized for ease of use in server-type usage scenarios.Each appliance is designed to "just work" with little to no configuration required.

The project currently maintains 40 virtual appliances, which are packaged in multiple build formats:

  1. Amazon Machine Image: provisioned on-demand via the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud.

  2. Virtual appliance: a ready-to-run VMDK disk image with OVF support. Does not require installation.

  3. Installable Live CD: an ISO image which installs on both bare metal (I.e., a non-virtualized physical machine) and virtual machines, including VMware, Xen, VirtualBox, and KVM. This image can also run live in non-persistent demo mode.

Pre-integrated server applications include LAMP, Joomla, Drupal, WordPress, MySQL, MediaWiki, Domain controller, File server, Ruby on Rails, phpBB, and many others.
