Bitnami Now Provides Secure Open Source Applications for AWS GovCloud

Today, we are excited to announce that Bitnami is a Launch Partner for AWS’ new GovCloud (US) Marketplace, bringing the Bitnami Application Catalog to qualified public sector customers in the US! GovCloud users can now deploy any of Bitnami’s 110+ packaged applications to “an isolated AWS region designed to host sensitive data and regulated workloads in the cloud.”

AWS GovCloud users can now easily deploy and maintain applications in the cloud with Bitnami. For public sector customers that may not be familiar with using open source software, Bitnami’s packaged application stacks provide added features and components to deliver everything you need out of the box. Bitnami ensures each application is:
  • Ready-to-Run – Pre-configured applications and development stacks 
  • Up-to-date – Bitnami’s Application Catalog is continuously updated and secure
  • Optimized – Consistently configured for best performance on any platform
  • Trusted – Over 1 million Bitnami packaged applications are deployed per month 
The AWS GovCloud helps customers comply with government security and regulatory requirements such as ITAR and FedRAMP, while enjoying the benefits and flexibility of using the cloud. GovCloud is only operated by Amazon employees who are U.S. citizens that reside within the United States, and is only accessible to US persons working at government agencies or in related industries.
