     11We provide a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_machine virtual machine]
     12appliance preloaded with Vespa. If you have virtualization software (like
     13[https://www.virtualbox.org/ VirtualBox],
     14[http://www.vmware.com/products/player/ VMWare],
     15or [http://www.parallels.com/ Parallels]), the Vespa appliance allows you to
     16try Vespa without first installing all of Vespa's dependencies.
     17
     18You can use the appliance for as long as you like, but if you like Vespa we
     19recommend you install it directly on your computer. Vespa runs faster on
     20real hardware.

     22== Using the Appliance ==
     23
     24First, you need virtualization software if you don't already have that
     25installed. We use [https://www.virtualbox.org/ VirtualBox] which is free and
     26open source.
     27
     28Once you have virtualization software installed,
     29[//appliance/VespaAppliance.ova download the appliance].
     30Next, follow your virtualization software's
     31instructions for importing an appliance.
     32
     33For instance, under VirtualBox, select File/Import Appliance... from the menu
     34and follow the prompts. You shouldn't need to change any values from their
     35defaults.
     36
     37== Copying Files onto the Appliance ==
     38
     39There are four ways to get your data onto the appliance.
     40
     41 1. Put your data files somewhere on the Web and then download them using the Web browser installed in the appliance.
     42 1. Email the files to yourself and use the Web browser installed in the appliance to read that mail and download the attachments.
     43 1. Share your host's file system with the appliance. See the documentation for your virtualization software for instructions on how to do this.
     44 1. Enable USB support. See the documentation for your virtualization software for instructions on how to do this.
