LAPP Appliance vs PostgreSQL Appliance - Difference?

What is the difference between the LAPP Appliance and the PostgreSQL Appliance?  I see you also have the same available for MySQL and LAMP Appliance.  Are the DB appliances setup with just the DB components and not all of the stack components?

 

Thanks,

Yeah, it can be a bit confusing. The LAPP appliance is optimized to be used as a web server, with PostgreSQL as the database back-end listening on localhost.

OTOH, the PostgreSQL appliance is configured to be used as a standalone database. The database is not bound to localhost so you can interface with it over the network.

Does that make sense?

Thanks for the clarification.
