Junos Space Virtual Appliance

The Junos Space Virtual Appliance consists of preconfigured Junos Space Network Management Platform software with a built-in operating system and application stack that is easy to deploy, manage, and maintain. A Junos Space Virtual Appliance includes the same software and provides all the functionality available in a Junos Space physical appliance. However, you must deploy the virtual appliance on the VMware ESX or ESXi server, or Kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) which provides a CPU, hard disk, RAM, and a network controller, but requires installation of an operating system and applications to become fully functional.

For information about installing Junos Space appliances in a fabric configuration and installing Junos Space Virtual Appliance on a VMware ESX or ESXi server, see Junos Space Virtual Appliance.
