Bitnami makes it easy to run your favorite server apps anywhere
Bitnami is a library of popular server applications and development environments that can be installed with one click, either in your laptop, in a virtual machine or hosted in the cloud. We take care of compiling and configuring the applications and all of their dependencies (third-party libraries, language runtimes, databases) so they work out-of-the-box. The resulting packaged software (a ‘stack’) is then made available as native installers, virtual machines and cloud images. These Bitnami application packages provide a consistent, secure and optimized end-user experience when deploying any app, on any platform.
What makes Bitnami awesome?
Our users love Bitnami (and we love them too!). By using Bitnami, they save a ton of time and effort that would otherwise be invested researching, downloading and configuring apps and development environments.
Our applications are completely self contained and bundle all of the libraries, databases, and runtimes required to run on any platform.
Whenever vulnerabilities or serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of the apps as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.
We have automated processes to track the latest release of all of the applications we support and will provide a new version as soon as it becomes available.
Our applications are configured optimally for most common scenarios out of the box. We fine tune compression and caching settings and bundle third-party technology like Google PageSpeed.
We hand-pick promising projects and run an online contest to let the community select which application we should package next. You can nominate and vote for your favorite app here.
Applications are packaged following consistent standards. The experience of deploying natively, as a virtual machine or hosting it in the cloud is nearly identical – so it is easy to move from development to production.
