USB Stick / Hard Disk Image
Dump this format on your USB stick or hard disk and boot from it. You may need to instruct the machine’s BIOS to boot from an external source if you’re usign a USB stick. Write the disk image using either `dd` or image writing software on your OS.
Live CD / DVD (.iso)
Use this format if you want to burn your appliance on CD or DVD. This is the easiest way to prepare bootable media. Simply download the .iso file and burn it to disk via any existing OS.
Preload ISO (.iso)
This is an ideal format if you are planning to perform installations on physical machines. Your appliance’s disk image will be wrapped in a simple bootable installer that asks only which hard disk to install to, and packaged for use on optical media.
VMware Workstation / VirtualBox (.vmdk)
For virtual machines on VMware, VirtualBox, or KVM-based hypervisors. Test an appliance without formatting any hard disk. VirtualBox and VMware applications are available for most host operating systems. KVM virtualization is for Linux only.
OVF Virtual Machine / ESXi (.ovf)
Open Virtualization Format (OVF) is an open, standards-based format for virtual machines. A variety of hypervisors including SUSE Cloud, VirtualBox, VMware ESX(i), IBM SmartCloud, and Oracle VM support creating virtual machines by importing an .ovf file.
Xen guest (.img)
Use this format if you want to run your appliance on a Xen host system, such as SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. Xen guests works only on Xen-enabled Linux hosts, including many virtual hosting providers.
SUSE Cloud / OpenStack / KVM (.qcow2)
If you plan to use SUSE Cloud services to host your server, this format will properly configure the appliance for you to do so. Use WebHooks to inform your cloud of a new image, and upload it automatically.
