VMWare Appliance Now available online

Dan made a VMWare Appliance of the PHGrid Globus node and it's available at

If you download both of the files here, you can run a SUSE installation of the Globus Toolkit. This will make configuration easier as all you have to do is make a few configuration changes(set the IP, hostname, user accounts, request a user and host cert, etc).

This will reduce the install time down even lower (5 minutes) and allow PHGrid nodes to run on Windows (through the free VMWare player).

This first release is still pretty large (4.5GB download, 8GB necessary to run) so it may take you a while to download (took me over 30 minutes to upload).
