We’re happy to announce a brand new way to try out OpenVBX quickly, and best of all, for free. Standing Cloud offers a service to easily install and try out popular open source applications in the cloud. Starting today, OpenVBX is now included in their application directory, allowing you to evaluate OpenVBX via a free 30-minute trial installation.
Standing Cloud has developed a powerful new platform for easily installing and managing instances of open source applications. In just a few clicks you can have WordPress, Joomla, Drupal or other applications (including OpenVBX) up and running on cloud providers like Amazon EC2 or Rackspace Cloud. Even more impressively, Standing Cloud allows you to back up an instance and restore it on a different provider.
Setting up an instance of an application literally takes one minute. To prove that point, here’s a video demonstrating the entire process of creating a new trial instance of OpenVBX:
Starting today OpenVBX is available as a free 30-minute trial. In the future you’ll be able to set up permanent instances hosted on your cloud provider of choice. Simply put, there is currently no quicker way to get up and running with OpenVBX.
