San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 11, 2009
BitNami.org, a website that simplifies the deployment of popular open source web applications, announced today that it has released all of the BitNami Stacks as Amazon Machine Images, or "AMIs". Now, users can deploy applications like Alfresco, Wordpress, JasperSoft and Joomla! on the Amazon Elastic Compute (EC2). EC2 allows users to run applications on infrastructure rented from Amazon and pay only for the time and bandwidth they use.
Since 2007, BitNami has been providing pre-configured, ready to run software bundles, called "Stacks", for wikis, blogs, customer relationship management, bug-tracking and other applications. Until now, the Stacks have been available in two formats: self-contained installers or virtual machines. The new BitNami AMIs offer users a third deployment option, Amazon's EC2, so they only pay for the compute time that the application is actually running without any upfront cost. All three options options completely automate the installation and configuration of an application and its dependencies.
"Jaspersoft is very pleased that BitRock chose JasperServer as the basis for BitNami's only BI Solution", said Mike Moody, Sr. Vice President, Product Development and Customer Support, Jaspersoft. "BitRock's extensive experience in creating installers for a variety of configurations, including Native, Virtual and Cloud environments, greatly simplifies the process of installing and deploying JasperServer. BitRock and Jaspersoft have maintained a strong partnership over the last 3 years and we continue to rely on BitRock's installer technology in our own native product releases."
"The cloud offers users a great way to run applications for testing, development, scaling and more," shared Erica Brescia, CEO of BitRock, the company sponsoring BitNami. "The BitNami AMIs provide ready-to-run images that can be deployed on EC2 in an instant, with no set up or configuration required."
