Tempe, AZ (PRWEB) March 20, 2008
JumpBox, Inc. (http://www.jumpbox.com), an innovative provider of virtual appliances, today at Under the Radar announced that it is launching JumpBox Open - giving users subscription access to their collection of time saving virtual appliances for Open Source applications.
JumpBox Open provides a departure for the firm that brings significant value to the user. Previously these applications and services were sold individually. With a JumpBox Open subscription, users can access all the current and future JumpBoxes for the cost of what would have amounted to only a handful of individual JumpBoxes.
"In a nutshell, JumpBox Open brings simplicity, selection and time savings to the world of Open Source software," said Kimbro Staken, JumpBox Co-founder and CEO. "Because JumpBoxes make it so simple to deploy applications, JumpBox Open provides easy solutions to most any business application requirements."
There are 20 JumpBoxes currently available, and over 50 more scheduled by the end of 2008. Current applications include: Alfresco, Bugzilla, Cacti, DokuWiki, Drupal, Joomla!, Mantis, MediaWiki, MoinMoin, OTRS, phpBB, TWiki, Trac/Subversion, vTiger CRM and WordPress.
JumpBoxes provide significant time savings by dramatically simplifying the deployment of Open Source server software. By enabling quick, easy and affordable installation of these applications, businesses no longer need to view the process as onerous, expensive, labor-intensive and time-consuming. The JumpBox library includes virtual appliances in 14 categories such as blogging, content management, customer relationship management, discussion forums, ticket tracking and wikis.
"JumpBox Open brings the world of Open Source to anyone who can use a mouse," said Sean Tierney, JumpBox Co-founder and COO. "Being able to run the most popular Open Source apps in the time it takes to make a cup of coffee fundamentally changes the whole game."
Under the Radar: The Business of Web Apps is a prominent conference series that profiles early-stage innovation, showcasing emerging startups and identifying trends.
