The fastest way to your app: Univention App appliances

Many of the apps are available as ready-to-use appliances for different virtualization and cloud formats such as KVM, VMware, and VirtualBox. These appliances contain a pre-configured UCS system, the ready-to-use app, and the management system for administration. It is the simplest way to get started with an app if you want to install it via the App Center in a scenario other than an existing UCS infrastructure.

The app appliances can be downloaded directly from the app catalog.

A range of apps are also available as cloud solutions from different cloud partners.
