josh_suereth.jpg So what is a virtual appliance? A virtual appliance is a virtual machine that can be distributed (like any file) and deployed onto some hypervisor (a server that runs virtual machines). Because a virtual appliance is an entire virtual machine, the appliance developer has control of the entire aspect of the machine, from operating system to window themes to startup procedures.
