[rt-users] RT Virtual Appliance (on Proxmox VE - OpenVZ)

Hi all,


We just released a virtualization platform (GPL licensed)
http://pve.proxmox.com . 


On this platform, pre-build virtual appliance can be started within
seconds as we use http://openvz.org  here. Please note, by using OS
virtualization there is little overhead (just 1 to 3 % performance loss,
really!) - this is absolutely the fastest technology for Linux server
virtualization. (openVZ is the basis of Virtuozzo, the commercial market
leader in the VPS market). 


We are also building virtual appliances for the use in the enterprise,
e.g. our own mail gateway, a web filter proxy (both are commercial) or a
mediawiki appliance and many others will follow in the next months.
(please note, Proxmox VE is beta, but this will change soon - subscribe
here for updates http://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Mailing_Lists ) 


We use and love RT since years so we want to contribute also a RT
appliance - I personally know a lot of companies who wants RT but they
cannot install it - too difficult. We will solve this problem.


As we are a Debian focused company, we prefer  to build the appliance
based on Debian Etch (32bit) and it should be using the stable RT
packages, mysql or postgres (which database  is preferred?).


So I would be happy if anyone can comment our plans and give us
feedback. Also I would appreciate feedback from Best Practical.




Best Regards,


Martin Maurer
