The Drupal CMS JumpBox combines Drupal version 5.1, providing users with a streamlined content management system.
One option for using Drupal is to try the Drupal Content Management System JumpBox, which bundles Drupal version 5.1. There are many benefits to using a JumpBox for Drupal or other Open Source applications.
First, JumpBox makes Open Source applications simple to try, run, and operate. Applications are often powerful and inexpensive, but installation and configuration can be a pain. With JumpBox, downloading and setting up an application takes only a few minutes.
Another advantage of JumpBox is its portability. The application, its dependencies, and all data are packaged in a single bundle that you can easily move from one computer to another. JumpBox supports Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux, so you can even move applications between platforms with minimal effort.
JumpBox also offers increased safety for your data. When manually installing Open Source applications, it can be challenging to figure out how to protect the data the application manages. With JumpBox, users can add automatic backups of their entire application state.
One of the most significant advantages of using a JumpBox is that it is a virtual appliance. This bundle of Open Source application runtime dependencies runs on top of virtualization software from VMWare, Parallels, or Xen. This means all JumpBox applications automatically gain the benefits of traditional server virtualization and can be dropped into existing virtualization infrastructure when available.
Finally, JumpBox provides a consistent runtime environment for all bundled applications. Even if the applications differ considerably, the installation and operation will be familiar no matter which JumpBox variant users select.
