Application Services provides the CentOS and Ubuntu sample templates with the operating system installed and all of the necessary libraries to deploy an application.

For example, to use the CentOS sample template, download the following files from the VMware product download site.

  • CentOS 6.3 32-bit OVF

  • CentOS 6.3 32-bit VMDK

For a list of the available sample templates, see the Application Services Readme file.

Upload the CentOS 6.3 32-bit OVF package to the vCloud Director catalog or vRealize Automation. For more information on the vCloud Director catalog or vRealize Automation, see the respective documentation.

Note:

For CentOS 32-bit sample templates, Physical Address Extension (PAE) is not enabled, so you can allocate up to 3.25GB of RAM for a virtual machine. PAE is enabled for Ubuntu 32-bit sample templates, so you can allocate more than 4GB of RAM for a virtual machine.
