Evergreen Demo System

On Praxis we've constructed an Evergreen ILS demo server, which you can download at cdn.edoceo.com/praxis/evergreen-demo.ova. It's base-line Evergreen system with PostgreSQL 9.1, eJabber, Memcached, OpenSRF 2.1 and Evergreen 2.3. When the OVA starts running you can visit it's web pages at http://evergreen-demo/ (provided you network/DHCP/DNS and stuff all play nice) The staff-clients are available from http://evergreen-demo/staff-client/
