Run BitNami Apps on Windows Free on AWS

This morning, Amazon announced that they have added support for Windows to their free tier, which allows users new to AWS to run a micro instance free for one year. As all of the free BitNami AMIs are available for Windows, you can now run all of the apps in the BitNami library on Amazon's free Windows tier. Note that the BitNami Windows AMIs are currently available for Windows Server 2008.r1.sp2. We are working on updating the AMIs to support r2 and should have those available soon.

To get started, select the app you would like to run from the BitNami library and then check out our tutorial for a step-by-step how-to guide. Enjoy!
