Working to make its public cloud more competitive, VMware has partnered with Bitnami to make using open source apps and development environments on vCloud Air easy.
The Bitnami Launchpad for VMware vCloud Air OnDemand website lists pre-configured images that can be installed with just a few clicks. The goal is to make it easier for companies to deploy the apps and development environments on vCloud Air, without having to manually set up anything, according to VMware.
On the website, vCloud Air users can click on any of the apps, choose from configuration options such as server size and region, and then click "launch." Images for Drupal, Joomla, WordPress and SugarCRM are all available. LAMP, Ruby and Node.js software stacks are there too.
The underlying technology Bitnami has developed takes care of compiling and configuring the applications and all of their dependencies, the companies said. The resulting packaged software is then made available as native installers, virtual machines and cloud images.
To get started with the VMware offering, users have to sign up for vCloud Air and create a Bitnami account. They pay for the cloud resources they consume.
