JumpBox Delivers 2-minute Install of the DSpace Open Source Repository  

Tempe, Arizona, June 16th, 2009 - JumpBox, publisher of virtual  
appliances that provide the easiest way to trial, develop, and deploy  
Open Source applications, today announced the availability of the  
JumpBox for DSpace. This addition marks the fiftieth JumpBox in its  
growing catalogue of time-saving virtual appliances for Open Source  

DSpace is an open source application that enables organizations to  
manage, share and preserve their research output. The software is  
primarily used by academia and cultural heritage institutions that  
want to share their research output and ensure the content persists  
over time. The DSpace application was created through a collaboration  
between MIT and HP Labs, and is now used by over 500 organizations  
around the world. DSpace supports all forms of digital media  
including, images, audio, movies, text and other rich media.

"We know of many organizations that would like to get started with  
DSpace but do not have the technical support or know how" says Michele  
Kimpton, Executive Director of the DSpace Foundation. "JumpBox allows  
them to deploy DSpace in a self-contained fashion in minutes  
minimizing the effort necessary to get up and running. This translates  
to a simplified evaluation process for schools and reduced  
installation cost and headache."

"Consistent with our goal of helping people be more productive with  
Open Source software, we're thrilled to be able to make this JumpBox  
available as a free resource for the DSpace community and to support  
the DSpace project and its principles." says Kimbro Staken, CEO of  
JumpBox Inc.

The JumpBox for DSpace runs under virtualization on every major  
operating system and is available for immediate download via the  
DSpace website. http://www.dspace.org/downloadJumpBox.
