_San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 29, 2009 – _BitNami, the site that simplifies the process of deploying web applications natively, virtually and in the cloud, has released RubyStack 2.0 along with ready to run packages of Rails-based open source applications. The BitNami Stacks are available as native installers, virtual appliances and cloud templates for Amazon EC2 and GoGrid.

RubyStack 2.0 is a fully integrated and configured package of Ruby, Rails, and all of the components required to develop and deploy Ruby on Rails applications, such as Apache, MySQL, Apache, PHP, Subversion, ImageMagick, Git and more. RubyStack is available as a native installer for deployment directly on a host machine, as a virtual machine image for deployment in a virtual environment, and as an AMI for Amazon and a GSI for GoGrid for deployment to either cloud platform. The fact that it is available in multiple formats makes it easy to replicate a standard configuration across different deployment environments for development, testing and production purposes.

BitNami also offers Stacks for popular open source Rails-based applications, including:

  • Spree: A flexible, extensible e-commerce platform. Spree supports over 50 payment gateways and includes the ability to add customized logic for taxation, shipping, discounts and coupons, along with a host of other features.

  • Radiant: A content management system designed for small teams. Radiant features an elegant user interface, flexible templating with layouts, snippets, page parts, and a custom tagging language, a first-class extension/plugin system and more.

  • Typo: A powerful blogging platform that provides custom templates, powerful drag and drop plugins API, advanced SEO capabilities, XMLRPC API and many more.

  • Tracks: An application for implementing David Allen's Getting Things Done (tm) methodology.

  • Redmine: A project management application. It supports multiple projects, role-based access control, an issue tracking system, file management, feeds and email notifications, per project wikis and forums, time- tracking and more.

Our goal with BitNami is to make developing and deploying applications on Rails and other frameworks as painless as possible, said Daniel Lopez, the founder and CTO of BitRock, the primary sponsor of BitNami. We're happy to be able to offer so many great open source applications in freely available, easy to deploy packages.
