Company solidifies position as destination for simple Open Source server software deployment

JumpBox, Inc. (http://www.jumpbox.com), an innovative provider of virtual appliances that greatly simplify server software deployment, today announced that they have grown their library of JumpBoxes based around Open Source software to include six additional applications: Cacti network graphing system, phpBB discussion forums, ProjectPier project management system, TikiWiki content management system, PmWiki wiki software, and MoinMoin wiki software. These additions bring the total number of applications in the JumpBox production library to twenty.

JumpBoxes are time-saving virtual machines that enable open source applications to be deployed faster and easier than ever before. Deployment requires minimal technical skill from the user, and theJumpBox Runtime system provides ease of use features like automated backups and a consistent web based control panel for common system functions. JumpBoxes make things simple by bundling a complete application stack into a turn-key, pre-configured unit that runs on top of virtualization software such as VMWare, Xen Open Source, Parallels, Virtual Iron, and Microsoft Virtualization.

"We are really excited to be able to offer twenty great Open Source applications in the time saving JumpBox format," said Kimbro Staken, JumpBox Co-founder and CEO. "and there's still more to come as we continue adding new applications and further empower our customers to easily evaluate, deploy and manage these powerful open source solutions."

The JumpBox production library already contains virtual appliances for other popular Open Source applications, including: Alfresco, Bugzilla, DokuWiki, Drupal, Joomla!, Mantis, MediaWiki, OTRS, PunBB, TWiki, Trac/Subversion, vTiger CRM and Wordpress.

"Setting up MoinMoin, for example, is drop dead simple with a JumpBox - what used to be a tedious, error-prone setup process can now be accomplished in minutes on any operating system," said Sean Tierney,JumpBox Co-founder and COO. "With twenty applications that same experience can be had for a wide variety of business productivity tools - fromwikis to blogging to project management to CRM."
