Free open-source apps for Microsoft Azure

Bitnami offers dozens of applications and stacks for Microsoft Azure. Launch an app or dev stack on a free demo server (no credit card required) or launch an image into your Azure account.

How to launch an Azure production server

The Bitnami Launchpad for Azure makes it incredibly simple to launch a production server with your favorite apps or dev stacks. Before you start, be sure to create an account on Microsoft Azure. Once you have done that, you can launch images directly from our Azure Launchpad and we'll walk you through all the steps. Click one of the videos above to see for yourself how easy it is to launch an app in Azure.

A few clicks is all it takes

By eliminating the complexity involved in installing server software, we make it possible for anyone, anywhere, to deploy software in minutes. You can be up and running on Microsoft Azure with the latest version of your favorite applications in just one-click.

  • Applications and stacks are always the most up-to-date production-ready version.
  • Bitnami images are the perfect way to evaluate applications or run pilot projects. Now you spend your valuable time using an application, not installing it.
  • Images are portable. The same images you run on Microsoft Azure are also available on your local machine and vice-versa. Easily move images from dev to QA to production.
  • Every Bitnami image has been pre-configured, tested and optimized to run in a Microsoft Azure environment.

    Just tried the Bitnami Wordpress installer to install WP locally, just to see how it is. Open-mouthed with astonishment at how easy it was

  2. Mad William Flint @madwilliamflint

    I don't know what I would do without bitnami's precanned app/protocol stacks. Saved my bacon so many times. I'm still underusing them.

  3. Glenn Batuyong @gbatuyong

    Great #WordPress article, @ausrob… I love my @bitnami #AWS appliance. Well-built, resilient, worry free, highly portable. #cloudcomputing

    Have I ever mentioned my love for @bitnami? Because I meant to - it's a lifesaver.
