I couldnt find any other info on the same on juniper website.
Could someone please share some info on the same.
Thanks & Regards

The Virtual Appliance is available for download at the following link:
It runs under VMWare

Be aware that Muttbarker's URL points to the DTE, Demo and Training Edition. This appliance is fixed 2 user, and so cannot be licensed for anything more.
There's also the SPE - Service Provider Edition - VA that can be downloaded, and also cannot be clustered.
By the way, you should ask yourself why you would want to cluster a VA: almost all of clustering functionality can be obtained by using push config and/or the underlying hypervisor's VM move facilities (in this specific case VMotion).
I really don't expect clustering to be incorporated in the VA editions, unless customers
really really really want demand it.

Hey Alex - thanks for the clarification - I almost posted both links, but I am working on the assumption that most people would want the non SP version.
As for the comment about clustering - I do think it would be of value to have the ability to "cluster" the demo versions and was even thinking of posting a comment on Kevin's blog about it.
As a reseller I think that it would be quite helpful from a training perspective. We don't run clustered SA boxes except at customer sites so when I want to test / train on that I end up having to borrow boxes which can be challenging. So selfishly, I would like it

Agreed, that would be just the thing you would want in a DTE. OK, now I'm selfish too!

I wonder if in the long term there will be plans to offer a virtual appliance as a direct replacement for some of the existing SA units.
Due to the cost of the licences, I am now looking at alternatives to the IVE so I have a solution in case of DR.
Having a virtual appliance would have allowed me to replicate this to our DR site (we run vSphere with mirrored SANs).

I have setup a virtual appliance - it was pretty straightforward. I am a totally dummy when it comes to VMWare ESX and only run it cause I have to be able to do things like run the SA Appliance, Junos Space the Junos Virtual FW.
I am running ESX 4.1 and I got the image from the web site and followed the install instructions as written and it came up just like a real appliance.

Along the same thread, I'm trying to find Installation Documentation for the Virtual Appliance. Specifically Hyper-V capabilities. I know VMware works, but is Hyper-V supported also, and if so, what image does my customer use?
