JumpBox for Bugzilla is a JumpBox virtual appliance for the Bugzilla Bug Tracking System.
What is a JumpBox
JumpBoxes are virtual computers that make installing and managing server based software dramatically easier. All that's required is one of our supported virtualization platforms and you can have a server based application running in minutes on Mac OS X, Windows or Linux. This provides considerable time savings over manual installation while also being very easy.
The applications we distribute are created by a broad array of developers and solve many different problems. JumpBox doesn't develop the applications, we simply package them in a clean, simple and easy to use format. This JumpBox bundles the Open Source application Bugzilla.
Our goal is to make server based software as easy to install and use as desktop software and in the process expose this great software to many more people. With a JumpBox, what previously took a skilled technician hours or days to install and configure now requires considerably less technical skill and takes just minutes.
JumpBoxes are great for trying new applications, development, experimentation and for production usage in many situations. Plus the JumpBox advantage doesn't end with installation. We also provide useful features like integrated backup/restore that makes protecting your data easy. Support for the JumpBox runtime is also available with the purchase of a JumpBox Assurance plan.
Bugzilla is a web-based bug tracking system that allow individual or groups of developers to keep track of outstanding bugs in their product. Bugzilla competes with many commercial bug tracking systems and has many features its expensive counterparts lack.
JumpBox didn't develop Bugzilla, we just make it easier to use by packaging it with the JumpBox Runtime.
