The whole Virtuozzo philosophy runs around the templates concept.
While the OS template is just one, for Windows Server 2003, there are several Application templates available out of the box.
A template is a pre-installed set of applications, layered above operating system, which Virtuozzo can apply to any VPS in a moment.
You can always manually add a new application to any VPS like in physical machines, but if you need to recurrently install a predefined amount of software inside your VPS, better use a defined template.
So, for example, creating 2 new SharePoint servers is simply matter of deploying a new Win2003 OS template with a SharePoint Application template, specifying 2 copies:
During the creation process Virtuozzo will ask some critical details to customize your new VPS: hostname and administrator password, IP address, subnet mask and DNS settings, and on which physical interface bind the new VPS:
Creating a new VPS took less than 1 minute on a standard Intel Pentium 4 3.06 GHz test machine.
