[bioontology-support] Access to a copy of the VMWare Virtual Appliance?

Hi again Jamie,

Thank you for providing your information with your request. You can now access this page that contains the download and documentation links:

We are now providing version 2.5 of the Virtual Appliance, which implements a "call home" feature to determine whether there is an update available. I notice that you want to work with an AWS instance; unfortunately this is still at version 2.4. We hope to have a new AMI available before too long, but perhaps you'd like to contact me about your specific situation. Also, if you have any questions or thoughts about your use of the Virtual Appliance, please feel free to contact me. Our licensing may be change before too long and it will be good to give you an update on that as well.

For any questions about the installation or ontology population process, please email support at<mailto:support at>. And since requests for Virtual Appliance support are made through this NCBO Support email list, we suggest you sign up for the email list at
This will help you keep up to date on the BioPortal and Virtual Appliance systems.

Hi NCBO team,
Impressive work - I’d like to get my hands on a copy of the appliance to explore whether we can use it to publish some Financial Services ontologies that we are developing. I’m reaching out on behalf of SWIFT Standards, where I am responsible for developing and publishing ontologies for the ISO 20022<> and ISO 15022<> financial information interchange standards.

Under ISO TC68/SC9/WG1<>, I’m working with technical and business colleagues from all other significant financial standardisation bodies to design and deliver a common ontology for Finance.

Our work is currently too experimental to be shared more broadly, so we’d prefer to work locally on our own machines, and with a more privately share AWS instance until we are a little more mature.

Greatly appreciate your help to get up and running with a local instance. Thanks!

Kind regards,
