OSClass and BitNami Enable One-Click Deployment of Classifieds Sites

BitNami and OSClass have collaborated to create the BitNami OSClass Stack, which provides one-click deployment of the OSClass classifieds management system in native, virtual and cloud environments.

San Francisco, CA. June 5, 2012 - OSClass, the popular open source platform for developing classifieds websites, has partnered with BitNami to simplify the installation of its software natively, virtually and in the cloud.

Called "one of the most delightful classified ads management solutions" by Softpedia and one of the "25 fastest growing projects" by Sourceforge in April, OSClass provides a platform for developing full-featured classifieds websites for real estate, jobs, or virtually any other products and services. A wide variety of themes and plug-ins make it easy to customize OSClass and extend it to work with services such as Paypal, Google Analytics, Facebook, and YouTube. The platform is currently available in English, German, French, Spanish and Catalan with other languages to come.

As the newest addition to the BitNami library of open source application packages, OSClass is now available in the form of ready-to-run installers, virtual machine images (VMs) and Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) for the Amazon Cloud. As with all BitNami Stacks, the BitNami OSClass Stack is completely configured and deployable in minutes in native, virtual and cloud environments. Users can download or launch the freely available packages from http://bitnami.com/stack/osclass

"At BitNami, we strive to bring our global user base the best-of-breed applications in each category," said Daniel Lopez, BitNami CTO. "We are excited to be adding OSClass to the BitNami Application Library, as it offers our users a great option for building classifieds websites for all types of products and services."

"Cooperating with BitNami it is a very important step in our strategy to ease the installation and management of our classified site software for all types of users. Now, thanks to the intuitive installation packages created by BitNami, we plan to reach an even greater audience of users interested in setting up their own internet-based classified sites," said Oscar Ribas, a project lead for OSClass.
