How our Products Work

YouTestMe products are designed to be used in wide range of organizations that require knowledge testing and learning.

YouTestMe products are delivered as a Virtual Appliance, a pre-configured “turnkey” enterprise application server that simplifies deployment for our customers by eliminating the need for manual configuration of the YouTestMe software and Operating System.

Once installed it can be immediately accessed by a large number of users simultaneously using only a web browser.

YouTestMe Virtual Appliance

YouTestMe is a complex server-based system. It consists of YouTestMe application, Oracle Linux host operating system, Oracle Database, scripts and utilities. They are all packaged in one pre-configured Virtual Machine, also called the Virtual Appliance. Virtualization is a powerful enterprise software concept that greatly simplifies distribution, installation, configuration and maintenance of complex computer systems.

There are many advantages of using the Virtual Appliance concept :

  1. Very complex computer systems are packaged in a pre-configured Virtual Appliance, hence very easy to install.
  2. Virtual Appliance does not depend on the underlying operating system.
  3. It is easy to assign additional virtual memory or virtual disk space to the Virtual Appliance.
  4. Backup and restore of the entire system is quick and simple.
  5. Migrating Virtual Appliance from one server to another is fast and convenient.

YouTestMe Software Package

YouTestMe is a complex server-based system. It consists of YouTestMe application, Oracle Linux host operating system, Oracle Database, scripts and utilities. They are all packaged in one pre-configured Virtual Machine, also called the Virtual Appliance. Virtualization is a popular concept that greatly simplifies distribution, installation, configuration and maintenance of complex computer systems.

In order to run a virtual machine, a “hypervisor” software is required. YouTestMe is supported on the following major hypervisor software:

Note that the above requirements are for the YouTestMe virtual machine. In order to be installed on a workstation or small server, the physical machine should have at least 4 GM RAM and 50 GB free disk space MORE than the above-stated requirements. If you are installing VM on a “bare metal” server with hypervisors such as ESXi, then the above requirements are equal to what you need to be available on the physical server.

Limitations:

  • Standard versions of YouTestMe Virtual Appliance should run on servers with up to two physical CPUs
  • Enterprise version of YouTestMe Virtual Appliance can run on servers with more than 2 physical CPUs
  • YouTestMe Virtual Machine should have a minimum of 2 virtual CPU cores assigned. This is required by Linux operating system within a virtual machine.
