Run Your Favorite BitNami Apps on RHEL in the Cloud!

At BitNami, we are focused on simplifying application deployment from development through to production. Many of our users run their production applications on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and we are very pleased to announce BitNami support for RHEL on the Amazon Cloud! In collaboration with Red Hat, we have released the most popular BitNami applications as AMIs for AWS. We have also added support for RHEL to BitNami Cloud Hosting, the easiest way to run web applications on AWS.

The new BitNami RHEL AMIs are available at the same hourly rates as the standard Red Hat Enterprise Linux AMIs, so there is no additional cost to use the BitNami-Red Hat Enterprise Linux AMIs to run your favorite open source applications either directly on the Amazon Cloud or using BitNami Cloud Hosting. As with the standard Red Hat Enterprise Linux AMIs, you will have access to AWS premium support with back-end support from Red Hat and access to repository updates from Red Hat to keep your cloud servers patched and up-to-date. The BitNami-Red Hat Enterprise Linux AMIs are available across all Amazon Cloud regions, so you can deploy them in the US, Europe, Asia, and South America.

The BitNami applications currently available as RHEL-based AMIs are: Drupal, Joomla!, Dokuwiki, Moodle, eZ Publish, Gallery, Mantis, phpBB and Piwik, with support for Alfresco, JasperServer and other applications coming soon.

To run an AMI directly on the Amazon Cloud, visit our BitNami RHEL AMI page and click on the link for the AMI you would like to launch. If you would like dynamic application deployment, automatic backups, server scheduling, one click restores and re-sizes and built-in monitoring, sign up for a trial of BitNami Cloud Hosting, our platform for running apps on the AWS Cloud.
