concrete5 and BitNami Simplify CMS Deployment Natively, Virtually and in the Cloud

BitNami and concrete5 have collaborated to create the BitNami concrete5 Stack, which provides one-click deployment of the concrete5 content management system across a wide range of platforms.

San Francisco, CA. March 20, 2012. – concrete5, the content management system made for marketing but built for geeks, has joined forces with BitNami to simplify the installation of its software natively, virtually and in the cloud.

concrete5 powers hundreds of thousands of sites and has been designed with the needs of developers, designers and site owners in mind. It is licensed under the liberal MIT license and has attracted a diverse and robust community of users and contributors. BitNami provides 'stacks' of popular web applications and all of their required dependencies such as web servers, language runtimes and databases bundled in fully configured and ready-to-run packages. The stacks are cross-platform and are distributed as installers, virtual appliances and cloud images for the Amazon Web Services cloud. concrete5 is the latest addition to the BitNami library of applications and can be downloaded or launched to the cloud from http://bitnami.com/stack/concrete5

"We are excited to add concrete5 to the list of applications that are available on BitNami.com" said Daniel Lopez, BitNami CTO. "Content Management Systems are some of our most popular stacks and concrete5 is an outstanding, high-quality addition to the BitNami family."

The new BitNami concrete5 stack makes deploying concrete5 a fast, painless process. It can be installed through a downloadable configuration wizard and in just a few minutes, users can have a completely configured concrete5 installation up and running on their Windows, Linux or Mac OS X system, free of charge.

BitNami also offers users the option of downloading a virtual machine image or deploying the BitNami concrete5 Stack directly to Amazon EC2. Regardless of the deployment target, users get a completely integrated, ready to run package. No manual configuration is required; concrete5 can be deployed in minutes by users of all technical skill levels.

"We're very excited to have concrete5 available through BitNami. Making it even easier to setup a local concrete5 development environment or cloud setup will really help us maintain the 5x growth rate we experienced last year," said Franz Maruna CEO, Concrete CMS inc.

In addition to concrete5, BitNami.com offers a wide range of popular open source applications for wikis, blogs, document management, bug tracking and more. BitNami-packaged applications are available as native installers, virtual machine images and Amazon Machine Images (AMIs).
