Jumpbox releases 38 Open Source Virtual Appliances on ec2

leave a comment »

After having gone through the learning curve of setting up an application on Amazon’s ec2, I found it interesting that Jumpbox has released 38 open source applications, including SugarCRM, mySQL, Drupal, etc, as virtual appliances available on the ec2 cloud. This is an interesting play because it leverages virtualization to offer software as a service in the cloud and is of great benefit to SMB’s who can use these services right away, when they don’t have the IT infrastructure (staff, hardware, data center, etc.) to host it themselves.

Smart move, Jumpbox, you are a hip startup – the convergence of virtualization, SaaS in the cloud should help raise your market valuation. 🙂
