What Is TurnKey?
TurnKey is a very nice solution for deploying open source software in your bare metal, virtual machine and in the cloud. Do you experience complex OS compatibility issues, library dependencies or undesirable interactions with other applications while deploying open source software?Use TurnKey virtual appliance and say no to these problems.
TurnKey integrates open source software into ready to use solutions by using the virtual appliance packaging technology, which combines a software application with the operating system for it to run on a standard hardware or a virtual machine.
The virtual appliance packaging technology is a very effective solution because it offers a simplified deployment and improved isolation. Virtual appliances do not effect each other, which means that if one of the virtual appliances is compromised or crashed, it does not effect others. But, what about simplified deployment, what does it mean?
Simplified deployment means no worries about potentially complex OS compatibility issues, library dependencies or undesirable interactions with other applications.
