JumpBox Now Supports Microsoft

JumpBox announced yesterday that its virtual appliances are now available for Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 and Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2. It's a very notable development as the time and effort required to deploy popular open source applications on these servers will now be minimal.

" Our ongoing commitment is to make server-based software easier for our customers to use," said Kimbro Staken, co-founder and CEO of Jumpbox, " Supporting the Microsoft virtualization platform is a natural step in making JumpBoxes even more convenient."

From the release: Users will have access to JumpBox's growing library of pre-built applications that provide a simple, safe and supported way to deploy Open Source server software. JumpBoxes are free to download and currently exist for: DokuWiki, Drupal, Joomla!, MediaWiki, PunBB, SugarCRM, Trac/Subversion, TWiki Wiki, vTiger CRM and Wordpress.
