BitNami has announced a new free tier of service for its BitNami Cloud Hosting offering, which provides one click deployment and simplified management of web applications in the cloud. The new free tier, called the “developer plan” provides free management of one micro instance on the Amazon Cloud for one year. Combined with Amazon’s free tier, this means that users can get completely free hosting for a year for BitNami-packaged applications such as Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla!, eZ Publish and ocPortal.
In addition to one-click application deployment, BitNami provides automatic backups, one click server restores, simple server resizing, server scheduling, monitoring and other features that simplify the management of applications on the Amazon Cloud. It is geared towards solutions providers, SMBs and departmental teams who want to have full control over their servers, but who may lack the internal resources to manage a cloud deployment manually. With BitNami Cloud Hosting, users of all technical skill levels can have their application(s) of choice running on the cloud in just minutes.
