OnApp and JumpBox simplify deployment of Open Source web applications in the cloud

Hosting providers can quickly deploy and maintain 50+ applications for a low monthly fee through OnApp’s cloud hosting engine
Sept. 1, 2010 - PRLog -- London, 01 September: OnApp and JumpBox have announced a new deal for hosting providers that makes it significantly easier to deploy and maintain popular Open Source web applications on cloud servers, using commodity hardware.

For a low monthly fee, hosting companies can deploy the entire JumpBox library of ‘ready to use’ web applications in the cloud, using OnApp’s unique elastic cloud engine, while benefiting from easy upgrades to those applications from JumpBox. The result is significantly reduced cost, complexity and time to deployment for the applications that hosting providers’ customers want to use. The monthly fee includes unlimited user access per cloud.

“The combination of OnApp’s highly configurable cloud hosting engine, and JumpBox’s ‘ready to use’ web applications, makes it simple for hosting providers to deploy and manage the applications their customers need,” said Carlos Rego, MD of OnApp. “With more than 50 JumpBox applications available today, a low monthly fee, and OnApp’s unique approach to cloud hosting, our clients can expand the services they offer in a very quick and cost-effective way.”

"With the combination of JumpBox and OnApp, hosting providers now have a ready library of application solutions for their customers," said Kimbro Staken, CEO of JumpBox "Adding these easy to deploy applications to a hosting service encourages increased usage by hosting customers and higher revenue for the hosting provider. Plus, since the library gains more applications over time, the provider’s revenue opportunity just continues to increase while the low monthly fee stays the same."

OnApp’s elastic cloud engine enables hosting providers to set up and manage cloud and virtual servers on commodity hardware, extremely quickly, using virtual machine templates and a web-based user interface. JumpBox makes it simple to deploy and manage Open Source web applications by packaging each one as a ‘ready to use’ virtual machine.

With the library of JumpBox virtual machines available through OnApp, hosters and other service providers can quickly deploy, configure and manage cloud-based applications  - from blogging and content management systems to wikis, bug trackers and e-commerce platforms - to meet the needs of their customers.

The OnApp cloud hosting engine is licensed to users on a cost per CPU core and cost per cloud basis, but is currently available with a full year’s free trial. See http://onapp.com/onapp-pricing/ for details.
