BitNami Stacks Now Available on New AWS Marketplace

BitNami teams up with Amazon to make its popular web application library available on the AWS Marketplace.

San Francisco, CA. April 19, 2012 - BitNami, developer of the BitNami library of easy to deploy web applications, announced today the immediate availability of its popular library of open source web applications on the newly released Amazon Web Services Marketplace. Each one of the BitNami Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) includes a web application and the other software it requires, such as a web server, language runtime and database, all of which are pre-configured and ready-to-run. The BitNami AMIs are freely available and provide a simple and effective way to deploy a variety of applications and development frameworks on the AWS cloud. Packaged application stacks include Drupal, Joomla!, WordPress, Liferay, SugarCRM, Alfresco and dozens of others, which can be downloaded as native installers and virtual machines to provide local environments that can be easily deployed to the cloud later on. Supported operating systems include Ubuntu and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, providing industry-standard options for end-users adopting BitNami as their preferred cloud application platform.

"As the world's fastest growing customer relationship management (CRM) company, SugarCRM applications serve over 1,000,000 end users in 192 countries. BitNami has been powering SugarCRM applications for several years, and we look forward to reaching an even broader audience via the AWS Marketplace," mentioned Clint Oram, SugarCRM chief technology officer, co-founder and vice president of product strategy.

"The AWS Marketplace is a step further in the consumerization of traditional IT, simplifying the discovery and deployment of applications on the Amazon Cloud," noted Daniel Lopez, BitNami CTO. "As the leading provider of cloud-ready application images, we are excited to make them available through this new marketplace from Amazon."

In addition to prepackaged application stacks, BitNami offers BitNami Cloud Hosting, a one-click automated backup and monitoring solution for developers and companies deploying applications on the Amazon Cloud for both development and production purposes.
