Re: Appliance vs Server install

The main benefit of the Appliance would seem to be the lack of a need
for an Server OS License. Also if you are not comfortable with setting
up a Server on which to install ZCM, the appliance may ease that process.

However, If you have a Server OS License you can use and you are
comfortable with setting up the Server OS, the Normal install is likely

Additionally, the Appliance OS is very stripped down so the OS itself
should rarely need patching and if a patch for the OS was required for
the operation of ZCM or security reasons, it would in theory be
delivered via ZCM updates. This could be nice for those setting up a
ZCM server for a large number of clients who want to minimize any "hands
on" requirement for the server.
