We are changing how people install and manage server software, making it easier than ever for everyone to run their favorite apps and development frameworks. By eliminating the complexity involved in installing server software, we make it possible for anyone, anywhere, to deploy software in minutes with native installers for Windows, OS X and Linux, as VMware or in the cloud.
From a developer getting started with the latest web technology stack, to the small business that wants to host their own CRM in the cloud, to the IT manager that wants to standardize how his infrastructure is managed, Bitnami saves users countless hours of configuring and setting up servers.
Open source roots run deep at Bitnami and we are happy to contribute to the continued success of the open source applications we package, many of which are often better and more flexible than their commercial counterparts. We do so by lowering the technical barrier to its adoption and making them accessible to a larger audience.
We partner with Amazon, Microsoft and other cloud providers to make cloud-based application hosting a snap. Read more about how we do it.
