LSL NSM Software Only Pricing

The software only version is sold in two configurations, a ready to run VMWare virtual appliance or Linux executables.

The virtual appliance can be started and configured in about 5 minutes after installation of the VMWare Player software. It is the recamended method for a software only install.

If you select the pure executables version on a general distribution you must be comfortable with Linux and in particular the following:

  • Compiling a custom kernel
  • Downloading and installing software from the Internet
  • Finding supporting packages as required for downloaded software systems.
  • Installing shrink wrapped software
  • Verifying functionality of installed software packages.

Many distributions have been tested.  Red Hat Enterprise 3 and above, SuSE Professional 9.2 or above, Debian Sarge & Etch, Gentoo 2005 or above have all been tested as functional.

We recommend a server meeting the tier specifications as listed below.  We have found these to provide an ample system for running the software.
