BitNami: Open Source. Simplified

BitNami: Open Source. Simplified

Here is another company (Bitrock) that provides packaged installations, virtual images, and cloud images which can deployed to any machine or the Amazon EC2 cloud service. They provide common open source platforms and applications, so that they are neatly packaged and setup for you to easily implement. You can install them natively on your choice of OS, run the from a VM player such as VMware or Virtual box, or deploy them in the cloud, with very little effort. This kind of thing could only be possible with the convergence of 3 very important technologies – Virtual machine images, cloud computing, and open source technology. This is very cool stuff, and a glimpse into the future. The sky is the limit, for cloud computing. (I couldn’t resist)
