BitNami is Coming to Windows Azure!

In connection with Microsoft’s release of new Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) capabilities to its cloud platform, we are very happy to announce that we are bringing your favorite BitNami apps to Windows Azure! In the very near future, we will be publishing two free images for Windows Azure, one focused on web development platforms and another with development environments.

The first image, BitNami DevPack,  provides an instant development environment for some of the most popular web development runtimes and servers, including PHP, Django, Ruby on Rails, Tomcat, MySQL, PostgreSQL and dozens of others. Everything you need to get started developing and hosting your own applications on Windows Azure is included in BitNami DevPack.

The other image, BitNami WebPack, includes ready to run versions of three of the most popular open source blog and CMS engines: WordPress, Drupal and Joomla!. It allows you to deploy full-featured websites in minutes which you can later customize with thousands of plugins and addons available for these platforms.
As with all BitNami Stacks, BitNami WebPack and DevPack for Azure are completely configured and ready-to-run, so you can have them up and running in minutes.
