How to install Snapt Aria on VMware

Installing Snapt on VMware is very simple. Follow the steps below to get Snapt up and running in just a few clicks.

Step 1: Download the latest ESX / ESXi / VSphere OVF from our Downloads portal.

Step 2: Deploy

By default Snapt will run on 1vCPU and 2GB RAM. These are the minimum requirements to efficiently run Snapt, but this will also depend on your underlying hardware. We suggest selecting 2vCPU’s and 2GB RAM for the best experience. Also ensure that you select a network interface for Snapt as you’ll use your web browser to configure Snapt once you have deployed the OVF.

Step 3: Authentication

Before you can access the Snapt Dashboard, you’ll need to authenticate and serialize your install. Please use your Shop Account Details for this.

After you’ve authenticated your install, you’ll be presented with the Snapt Admin Portal log in screen. The default username is “admin” and password “admin”. We do advize changing this on your first log in.

Step 4: Plugin Installs

Now that you’ve logged in to the system for the first time, you will need to get started by installing a plugin. Navigate to Setup > Modules & Plugins > Add Plugins

Here you can install all of the plugins you might need. All Snapt licenses include the full product suite, so you will have access to all plugins listed.

Tip: For the full ADC suite, you’ll need to install the follow set of plugins: Balancer, Accelerator, WAF

*Snapt was installed on VMware ESXi 6,5, using 2vCPU’s(Intel(R) Xeon(R) E3-1231 V3 @ 3,40Ghz) and 2GB RAM
