JumpBox releases virtual appliances in Open Virtualization Format (OVF), further increasing deployment ease for VMware ESX
JumpBox, publisher of virtual appliances which provide the easiest way to trial, develop, and deploy applications, today announced the release of 38 Open Source applications in the Open Virtualization Format (OVF), a software standard for packaging and distributing virtual appliances.

A JumpBox is a pre-built and configured virtual appliance that deploys in minutes, saving users up to 70% of the time and cost of traditional software application deployment. OVF enables even simpler JumpBox deployments, particularly for users of the VMware ESX hypervisor based virtualization system.

"JumpBox Open customers have always sought the utmost ease of use in deploying virtual applications," says Kimbro Staken, CEO, JumpBox. "Publishing JumpBoxes in the OVF format brings VMware ESX users greater ease of use and extra value from their JumpBox Open subscription."

Applications delivered as OVF are available to premium subscribers to JumpBox Open, JumpBox's annual subscription suite of virtual appliances for Open Source software.
