BitNami Cloud Tools now with Amazon Simple Email Service

We're happy to announce that the BitNami Cloud Tools installer has been updated and now includes support for Amazon SES! As Amazon explains, "Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES) is a highly scalable and cost-effective bulk and transactional email-sending service for businesses and developers." It integrates with other AWS services to make it easy to send mail from applications hosted on the Amazon Cloud. Since it is Perl-based, we include a precompiled, preconfigured Perl environment and supporting libraries for Linux (x86/x64) and     OS X. 

The updated installer also contains updates to the aws-ec2-api, aws-auto-scaling and aws-sdk-ruby  tools to versions, and 1.1.2, respectively.

The BitNami Cloud Tools installer contains all of the available tools from Amazon for developing for AWS. To get started, simply download and run the installer and you'll be ready to start your cloud development project in minutes. Enjoy!
