By far, the biggest payoff of open source is the unrestricted access to the source code which allows us to modify the application to meet the unique requirements of each individual customer and give the customer an application they essentially own
Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) September 8, 2010
CyberOptic Group (CyOp), a Florida-based open source applications integrator, announced today its partnership with JumpBox, an Arizona-based provider of services that amplify the usefulness of Open Source server software.
This partnership leverages the core strengths of both companies to enable businesses to drastically lower their costs of computing.
JumpBox offers a library of open source applications that can be easily deployed as a service, effectively delivering open source software through a utility model, giving tremendous flexibility over traditional deployments while reducing capital and operational expenses.
CyOp provides a suite of services surrounding open source software that ensure a successful implementation, user training, and ongoing support for its clients. This allows CyOp to significantly reduce the client's overall expenses, increase their profits and operational efficiency, and provide numerous other benefits associated with open source.
"JumpBox dramatically improves the accessibility of Open Source server software," says JumpBox, Inc COO Sean Tierney. "CyOp's consulting & development services complement the JumpBox offering by going that last mile in providing the training, support and customization necessary to turn these stock applications into true integrated solutions that get used and create real business value"
With the combination of JumpBox and CyOp services, even companies lacking in-house technical expertise can now have access to a large library of leading open source software that can be rapidly deployed, either to an on-site server or through a cloud, have the applications customized to suit the specific business needs of the clients, and have access to expert infrastructure and application support to ensure proper implementation, customization, training, and ongoing support and development.
"Many companies are attracted to open source because there are no associated licensing fees," explains Jonathan Castleman, CyOp's President, "But, by far, the biggest payoff of open source is the unrestricted access to the source code which allows us to modify the application to meet the unique requirements of each individual customer and give the customer an application they essentially own."
Castleman also noted that because the application is owned by the customer with full access to the souce code there is no vendor lock-in and the application can never be obsoleted since a large community of open source programmers is available to ensure ongoing development and support.
"JumpBox offers a revolutionary new way to easily and cost-effectively deploy and manage open source software environments, and when combined with CyOp's consulting & development services, now even a small businesses can have access to enterprise-class applications and achieve a rapid return on investment of technology dollars," Castleman stated.
