BitNami Courts Developers By Adding Jenkins, Solr and Node.js to its App Library

BitNami has added three new applications for continuous integration, website search and web development to its library of ready-to-run application packages.

San Francisco, CA. May 31, 2012 - BitNami, developer of the widely popular BitNami Application Library, announced today that it has added Jenkins, Solr and Node.js to its catalog of ready-to-run packages for popular open source applications and development frameworks. These additions bring the total number of BitNami Stacks to 49, ranging from CRM and document management systems to blogs and wikis to development tools and environments such as Ruby on Rails, Django, Java, and PHP.

Jenkins, the first of the new BitNami Stacks, is a continuous integration server formerly known as Hudson. Built with Java, it allows developers to continuously build and test virtually any project. It supports source control management tools including CVS, Subversion, Git, Mercurial, Perforce and Clearcase, and can execute Apache Ant and Apache Maven-based projects as well as arbitrary shell scripts and Windows batch commands.

Solr, the second new addition to the BitNami library, is an Apache project that provides a blazing fast open source enterprise search platform from the Apache Lucene project. Solr is highly scalable, providing distributed search and index replication, and it powers the search and navigation features of many of the world's largest internet sites.

The third new BitNami Stack, Node.js, is a web development platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.

As with all BitNami Stacks, the Jenkins, Solr and Node.js Stacks are available as native installers for Linux, Windows and OS X, as virtual machine images (VMs) and Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) for the Amazon Cloud. They are fully configured and ready to run so that developers can have them up and running in minutes on their platform of choice.

In addition to making the BitNami Stacks freely available to end users, BitNami provides subscriptions of custom-built application images for public and private cloud platforms based on vCloud, CloudStack, Eucalyptus, OpenStack and other cloud platforms.
