VMware Ultimate Virtual Appliance Challenge

VMware hat die Virtual Appliance Challenge abgeschlossen, ein Wettbewerb bei dem die Community virtuelle Maschinen konfigurieren und an VMware schicken konnte:

First Prize. HowNetWorks, a high-level network analyzer. (Mikko Hiltunen, team leader.)

Second Prize. Trellis NAS Bridge, network attached storage (NAS) virtualization for multiple CIFS/SMB and Unix/SSH servers. (Andrew Macdonell, team leader)

Third Prize. Sieve Firewall, transparent bridging iptables firewall configured through a Windows-based .net GUI. (Michael Jett, team leader)

Collegiate Category Prize. Open Network Registrar, a drop-in administration tool for BIND and DHCP. (Zachary Colgan)

Consumer Category Prize. FreeNAS, a network attached storage (NAS) server. (Olivier Cochard)

Developer Category Prize. eBrainPool, a new dimension network of virtualized hosts sharing software, operating environment and computing platform. (Jatin Golani)

Server Category Prize. Enterprise Encryption Server, automated OpenPGP based data encryption/decryption. (Carl Bourne)

VMTN Community Choice Prize. Hermes Memcached Virtual Appliance, a high-performance distributed memory object caching system using memcached. (Prabhakar Chaganti)

Jedenfalls kann man jetzt schon eine ganze Menge dieser Images bei VMware unter Virtual Appliances herunterladen. Interessant im Hinblick auf den Test neuer Software (Nagios, etc), da auch Unternehmen Trialversionen anbieten wie Astaro.
