To evaluate SSB as a virtual appliance, you can download and install the latest SSB ISO file into a virtual machine. The following virtual environments are supported for evaluation: Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware, and vSphere (VMware ESX). SSB may work in other virtual environments like VirtualBox or KVM as well, although these are officially not supported. You can obtain an evaluation license and the ISO file using your support portal account.
