What are the VERDE Installation Methods?

Product Line:  VERDE 

VERDE provides two installation methods:

  1. Traditional installation (rpm and deb)
  2. Bare metal installation

The traditional VERDE installation installs on an existing or new Linux installation. A bare metal installation installs a self-contained version of VERDE on a server.

The bare metal installation is recommended for most installations, and requires basic Linux management skills.  All system packages are included in the installation.  After the base operating system is installed, networking, storage, and server configuration are performed through the VERDE menu.

If you need to install VERDE on an existing, supported Linux server, please refer to  the VERDE Configuration and Installation Guide for platform-specific requirements and packages.
