Oracle Traffic Director can be used either as a physical application or as a virtual appliance.
You can install Oracle Traffic Director on an Oracle Linux 5.6 system and run one or more instances of the product to distribute client requests to servers in the back end.
For information about installing Oracle Traffic Director as a physical application, see the Oracle Traffic Director Installation Guide.
Appliance running on a virtual platform
After deploying Oracle Traffic Director as a physical application, you can create a virtual appliance from an Oracle Traffic Director instance or create an assembly containing multiple such appliances. You can then deploy the appliance or assembly on the Oracle Virtual Machine hypervisor. To enable such a deployment, Oracle provides an Oracle Traffic Director plug-in as part of Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder, a tool that you can use to build virtual appliances and assemblies from physical applications.
For more information about creating and deploying virtual assemblies containing Oracle Traffic Director instances, see the Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder User's Guide.
