BitNami Cloud Hosting Free Tier At BitNami, we are committed to making it easy for anyone to run their favorite open source applications natively, virtually and in the cloud. We are excited to announce that we are making it even easier to run BitNami apps in the cloud by offering a free plan for our BitNami Cloud Hosting service!

The new free tier of service for BitNami Cloud Hosting allows you to deploy and manage your favorite open source applications on one Amazon micro instance for one year. A micro instance provides 613 MB of memory and up to 2 EC2 Compute Units (an ECU provides the equivalent CPU capacity of a 1.0-1.2 GHz 2007 Opteron or 2007 Xeon processor.) As Amazon also offers a free service tier for new users for one year, this means you can get an entire year of free cloud hosting from Amazon and BitNami!

This is a big step for us, but we are really pumped about how easy BitNami Cloud Hosting makes it to run applications in the cloud and want to make sure it is accessible to as many people as possible.
