JumpBox Teams With Virtual Iron

TEMPE, Ariz. -- JumpBox, Inc. (, an innovative provider of virtual appliances, today announced the public release of its JumpBox line of server applications for Virtual Iron Software's server virtualization platform. The new appliances allow users to deploy open-source, server-based applications on Virtual Iron environments in a fraction of the time it would normally take them. JumpBoxes for Virtual Iron are available immediately for download at

JumpBoxes allow for quick and simple deployment of Open Source server-based applications. The JumpBox platform bundles the entire application stack into a turn-key, pre-configured unit that runs on top of virtualization software such as Virtual Iron.

"JumpBox makes the installation of Open Source server software simple enough that anyone can do it," said Kimbro Staken, Co-founder and CEO of JumpBox. "Want a wiki for a small team? Or a CRM system for your sales force? With JumpBox, Virtual Iron users can have one running in minutes. Similar benefits can be had for content management, project management and blogging applications."
