BitNami Adds Support for Latest Version of Ubuntu

BitNami has released updated virtual machine images and cloud templates for its library of ready-to-run web applications to include the latest Ubuntu release, version 12.04.

San Francisco, CA. April 30, 2012 - BitNami, developer of the popular BitNami Application Library, announced today that its library of ready-to-run web application packages has been released for last week's major Ubuntu release, version 12.04.

The BitNami Application Library is a collection of over 45 different packages of popular open source applications and development environments, such as SugarCRM, Alfresco, Drupal, Wordpress, Redmine, Ruby on Rails and LAMP. All of the BitNami packages are available free of charge as native installers, virtual machine images and Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) for the Amazon Cloud. The packages are fully configured and contain all of the software required to run the target application, so they can be deployed in minutes to desktops, servers or cloud instances.

The virtual machine images and cloud templates are packaged with the Ubuntu operating system, a free and user friendly Linux distribution used by millions of users globally. The 12.04 version of Ubuntu, released last week, includes several new features, including the JuJu cloud orchestration tool and Metal-as-a-Service. It is now packaged with all BitNami virtual machine images and cloud templates to give users all of the benefits of Ubuntu 12.04.

In addition to making the BitNami packages 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.
