Three Easy Ways to Install/Get Opsview

So you are desperate to give Opsview a go? No problem, we have three easy ways to get Opsview they are all so fast you will be up and running in no time.
The three different options are designed to suit a range of different environments and requirements. Here is a breakdown of all the different options and how they might suit your monitoring needs.

Opsview Virtual appliance

If you want something that runs locally and is ready to go straight away then the Virtual appliance is for you. We have pre-installed Opsview in Ubuntu 14.04 and made it available to all our users. It could not be easier to set up. Just load the image into VMware or Virtualbox and you will be ready to start accessing Opsview!

We also have an image available for Hyper-V that is just as easy to use.

For full instruction see our documentation pages here.

Cloud Image

Prefer to run your system in the cloud? Then we have a choice of either Amazon EC2 On-Demand or Google Cloud Compute images for you to use on your preferred Cloud provider.

Just as easy to deploy as our Virtual Appliance. It is fully built and available either directly on EC2, just deploy the Opsview AMI, or download the Google Cloud Compute image and deploy to Google Cloud you will be up and running in no time.

For full instructions see our documentation pages here.


Scripted Install

Want to use another one of our supported Operating systems? Want to run on physical hardware? Have your own Operating System configuration just the way you like it? Or just want to see how lightning fast our installer script really is? Then just set off the script on your own system, it does all the hard work for you and is so quick you will barely have enough time to grab a cup of tea before you will be up and running with Opsview.

As always it is fully documented, you can find the guide here.


No matter how you want to run Opsview; in the cloud, locally or virtualized getting up and running could not be easier or quicker. 

If you don’t already have a license key for your new install you can compare versions and get a key here.

Once you have Opsview installed you can find how to start getting the most out of your new system with our guide here.
