Webinar - " Achieve Your Website Goals with the Official WordPress Image for the Cloud" - August 14th at 10 am PST - Register Now

On January 16, 2019, we announced our partnership with Automattic, the company behind, to create an official WordPress image for the AWS cloud.

Today, all of the different flavors of Bitnami WordPress images in the AWS Marketplace have been re-published as official images certified by Bitnami and Automattic.

Along with updating our images, we have also released a new Production-Ready WordPress image that is designed to handle all of your production environment needs.

WordPress Production-Ready is a pre-configured CloudFormation template designed for production environments. Its architecture spans two availability zones in the AWS region and auto-scaling group configured in each node to ensure high-availability and horizontal scaling.

Maximum performance is maintained by a replication model for distributing workloads across multiple WordPress instances, Elastic Load Balancing to distribute requests across the nodes, EFS for persisting files and ElastiCache cluster with Memcached for caching database queries to Amazon Aurora.

With WordPress Production-Ready Certified by Bitnami and Automattic, your company can rest assured that the application will withstand the traffic and scaling required for your popular site with the following features:

  • High-availability architecture with two availability zones and auto-scaling group configured in each node to ensure dynamic horizontal scaling.
  • Public subnets configured to allow EC2 Instances to act as bastion hosts for inbound traffic and Managed NAT Gateways allow outbound traffic to WordPress instances, following the AWS security guidelines.
  • Always up-to-date and secure; includes the latest available version of WordPress, PHP, and Apache.

Is there anything else new in the updated WordPress listings by Bitnami and Automattic?

Yes, there is!

All of our WordPress images for AWS now include the Automattic Jetpack plugin by default.

Jetpack, one of the most popular plugins for WordPress, is the most powerful way to design, protect, and manage multiple WordPress websites. Jetpack is powered by the folks behind, which means you’ve got the infrastructure to handle billions of pageviews behind your sites, plus world-class 24/7 support.
