vRealize Hyperic vApp

A virtual appliance (vApp) is one or more virtual machine image files (.ovf), each with a preconfigured operating system environment and application. The vRealize Hyperic vApp contains two virtual machine images, one for the vRealize Hyperic server and one for the vRealize Hyperic database. Deploying the vRealize Hyperic vApp provides a simplified deployment in which the components are already configured to work, and to work with each other.

The vRealize Hyperic vApp is provided as an OVA archive that contains the .ovf descriptor, .mf, and .vmdk files that are necessary to deploy the vRealize Hyperic server and vRealize Hyperic database vApps using vSphere Client. You can also create a vRealize Hyperic vApp in your virtual cloud from a vApp template, using VMware vCloud Director.

For installation prerequisites and instructions, see Install vRealize Hyperic vApp.
