The Hardware Appliance is a pre-installed and pre-configured Server in a 19" rack. It contains the following Software components:
- An openSUSE Linux Operating System
- A Web Server (Jetty)
- A ClamAV Virus scanner
- The pre-installed Cryptshare Software
As part of ordering a Hardware Appliance we ask you to give us some information about your network configuration. This information is used to pre-configure your Appliance in a way so that you can directly visit the Administration Interface after connecting it to the network and power supply.
The Virtual Appliance can be received from the "Support" section of our web site (https://www.cryptshare.com) The Virtual Appliance is exclusively available for VMware and is exclusively using an openSUSE Operating System. Nevertheless it is possible to use Cryptshare on virtual,- or hardware systems using a different hypervisor or a different operating system. In this case not the chapters for 'Virtual Appliances' are relevant for you, but the ones dealing with 'other systems' or 'self-installed systems'.
As an alternative to our Appliances there is the possibility to install Cryptshare on a virtual, or hardware system which has previously been prepared by you according to the Cryptshare System requirements. These systems are named 'self-installed systems' within this document.
