BitNami has released CloudFormation templates for applications such as SugarCRM, Alfresco, Drupal, Joomla!, Wordpress and many others to enable users to deploy open source applications to the cloud in minutes.

BitNami, which simplifies the process of deploying web applications natively, virtually and in the cloud, released today free templates for popular open source applications for Amazon’s new CloudFormation service.

AWS CloudFormation simplifies the process of deploying applications on top of Amazon Web Services by allowing developers to describe a ‘stack’ of cloud resources and bring them up and down as a single unit. A CloudFormation stack can include load balancers, databases, EBS volumes and EC2 instances, among other resources.

By providing all of the PHP and Ruby-on-Rails-based BitNami applications as CloudFormation templates, BitNami makes it easier to deploy and provision open source applications on the cloud. Applications available as CloudFormation templates include:
                        •    SugarCRM                                     •    Redmine
                        •    Wordpress                                     •    Drupal
                        •    Joomla!                                            •     Coppermine
