Drupal is an Open Source, web content management (WCM) system. It provides a simple, intuitive interface that allows an individual or a community of users to easily publish, manage and organize a wide variety of content on a website without programming skills.
Drupal is an extremely powerful system that rewards the users who climb the fairly steep learning curve. The JumpBox for Drupal lowers the learning curve a little by giving you a Drupal installation that’s ready to run in just minutes allowing you to focus on using Drupal rather than getting it installed.
This JumpBox is for the Drupal 5.x series of releases. A separate JumpBox is also available for the newer Drupal 6.x.
This JumpBox is based on the 1.1 JumpBox Platform and includes a backup system that supports archiving the state of the JumpBox to NFS, Windows File Shares and Amazon S3
JumpBox takes the pain out of server software deployments.
A JumpBox packages an application’s software, dependencies, and application data into a single virtual appliance that deploys locally, or hosted to major virtualization, and cloud computing platforms. Deploy on Windows, Mac, or Linux using virtualization platforms like VMware, Xen, Parallels, Virtual Iron, Microsoft Virtualization, and Amazon EC2.
Among other enhanced features, a JumpBox provides:
- An intuitive user interface to quickly guide users through deployment.
- A web-based control panel for simplified management of system functions.
- A backup system that enables data security and portability.
