OntoPortal Virtual Appliance Version 3.0 is here!

We are pleased to softly announce our soft release of the OntoPortal Virtual Appliance version 3.0 (3.0.1, to be precise).

This release includes lots of new capabilities, one of which involves licensing. The good news is that you can download and get started with your Virtual Appliance right away—no need to wait for us to give you access to the right page.

In order to do this, we had to implement licensing for BioPortal. Most users will find it trivial to obtain a free license, but for commercial users we are evaluating whether license fees could make BioPortal more sustainable.

To learn more about the new OntoPortal Virtual Appliance release, visit our Getting Started page. You may also want to visit our OntoPortal Administration Guide, including the General Introduction, Licensing, and Installation sections.

OntoPortal Virtual Appliance v2.5 archive is available

For previous registered users of the v2.5 OntoPortal Virtual Appliance, we maintain an archival copy of this software on our site. While we do not actively support this version because its libraries are outdated, we still make it available to those users who were previously authorized to use it. All new users of the Virtual Appliance should use Version 3 or later of the Appliance.

The OntoPortal Virtual Appliance is the (rebranded) update of the BioPortal Virtual Appliance originally developed by the National Center for Biomedical Ontologies (NCBO). Our current Virtual Appliance software is based on BioPortal's v5.x software infrastructure, including the use of an RDF triplestore as the primary data storage mechanism.

Even older archive
