Bitnami is a company I’ve been watching for a number of years. They take a very obvious proposition and deliver it simply and easily for different platforms. The idea of Bitnami is simple – cloud and hosting platforms are, at their very essence, blank canvasses that are nothing without the applications and environments that work on top of them. Bitnami provides a platform whereby popular server applications and development environments that can be installed in a click, onto a user’s platform of choice. That could cover a number of deployment options: either on their laptop, in a virtual machine or hosted in the cloud.
