Bitnami Launchpad for Azure: New and Improved

We recently made changes to the Bitnami Launchpad for Azure to provide you with an even better experience when deploying Apps in the cloud. Some features are more noticeable than others, but all of them provide users with a simple, easy to use interface. Read more about the updates below.

SSD based instance types
We now support SSD based instance types, ideal for more demanding server applications.

Multi-subscription support
More than one Azure credential? No problem. You can now add multiple subscriptions to your Bitnami Vault, and select the one you want to use when creating your new server.

Step 1: Add and manage your subscriptions

Step 2: Pick a subscription when creating a server

Locating a specific app has never been easier with the Search by Categories dropdown.

Operations and user-facing progress messaging has also been improved, making it effortless to launch Azure servers.

We are excited for Bitnami users to try the new look and feel of the Bitnami on Azure Launchpad, and we look forward to feedback. Get started launching your apps now!
