Under the Hood
RealEarth™ runs in an 8 GB virtual machine (VM) that contains everything you need if you want to run your own instance. It can be downloaded and installed on Linux CentOS systems that support hardware virtualization. An installation script helps with initial setup. Contact us if you have questions or run into difficulties.
