The JumpBox for LAMP Deployment is a great utility system that allows you to easily deploy applications where a tailored JumpBox may not exist. It contains MySQL plus PHP, Perl, Ruby and Python along with PHPMyAdmin to help you manage the database. Using the JumpBox for LAMP Deployment you can easily deploy many popular PHP applications as well as CGI based Perl, Ruby and Python applications.
It’s also a great platform to develop on and gives you an easy to use Ubuntu Linux environment that will run on Windows, Mac OS X and any other version of Linux.
This JumpBox also has an interesting capability that if you install an application into it and then use our backup system to create a backup, you end up with a simple archive of the app that can be installed into another copy of the JumpBox by doing a simple restore. This seems simple, but it opens up some interesting uses that we’ll explore more on the JumpBox Blog in the coming weeks.
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.
