Best Cloud Service Ever

What do you like best?

I tried many cloud services including the giants in the market and can definitely tell you that bitnami by far one of the best services out there. they give you the option to install the script you want from the choice if hundreds of scripts on a cloud service provider which you can choose. they also have a bitnami cloud platform to run scripts which is really awesome. installing these scripts know as stacks is pretty easy and can be done with a click of a button, also you can install multiple stacks on a single server. the installation and setup is pretty easy that it could save you a lot of time and manual work. there is no technical knowledge requires working on bitnami.the bitnami cloud service also gives you a small free cloud server to test out their services which is really great and a fantastic offer for those who plan on using bitnami and wants t know what they offer before investing. the interface is beautiful and i had no trouble what so ever in navigating from page to page.the support is also pretty great which replies quickly to your queries.

What do you dislike?

the pricing isn't the cheapest and you can find similar servers for a better price in the market.

Recommendations to others considering the product

this is by far the best cloud service to install scripts and managing them.i highly recommend you to go with them

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

installing and managing scripts in cloud servers. the stacks are installed on a non-root level so many root level permissions are inaccessible. updating stacks is really a time-consuming job as there isn't any safe way to do it, you got to back up your data and later on restore it.

Fast Easy Beautiful

What do you like best?

I have been working with WordPress for years now and installing the script on a server takes a lot of time and effort. then i came across bitnami, they provide you with installing scripts that you want on cloud servers you choose. there are hundreds of scripts and cloud services for you to choose from.the most important poek of bitnami is how easy to use it, we can install scripts usually called stacks on the cloud with a single click without any knowledge of coding or web development. the servers are also really fast and extremely responsive. their support is really helpful, I had my WordPress database messed up once and they solved the issue within minutes. also, the give yo small free server to run your scrips as a free trial to check out their service which was great. another important thing is the promotions they offer so that you can get free credits to run the server, I got $300 free in credits while testing out Wordpress in google cloud. the interface is beautiful and really easy t move through.

What do you dislike?

stack and connected apps often got mixed up and cause troubles like if you try to install WordPress and Joomla on a single cloud platform, it'll install two copies of common supporting apps like PHP, which will consume both memory and space.

Recommendations to others considering the product

this is a great service, unless you want to sit hours in front of system and setup scripts by your own, go for it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

installing and managing WordPress on cloud servers provided by google

Awesome support, Clean Installations

What do you like best?

the script installation is easy and clean, I couldn't find any error while running the script and all the components are also pre-configured. there is a wide selection available for the user to choose, they provide with multiple scripts as well as servers to choose from. installing those script need to technical knowledge at all and they provide one-click install for all their scripts. the customer service is really awesome and very responsive to the queries. the bitnami servers give you a small server for free to test out their service and i find it really helpful while starting to work with them.

What do you dislike?

the installation is non-root based so some of the functions and security configuration that only works with root access are limited. once I got an error when trying to update the Joomla stack and lost all my data. after contacting them i learned that you need to backup data first and individually update each stack, i couldn't find an easy way around it. also installing multiple scripts can be troublesome cause when installing more than one script it installs each component required for the script multiple times, i had three installations of MySQL on my server eating up all the resources.

Recommendations to others considering the product

they are really good at what they are doing, so try them out first and see for yourself

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Run your scripts on cloud computers with ease.

Great Support, Affordable Packages

What do you like best?

when starting out with cloud hosting, I tried to set up WordPress on an AWS instance and it was a hefty of codes to set it up and getting my website live. then I came to know about bitnami from a friend of mine and the platform changed the way I used cloud applications. they offer a wide range of applications to be installed on your desired cloud, laptop or in a virtual machine with a single click which is really cool. when i used to install WordPress i had to waste a lot of time on configurations and my databases used to have errors frequently but with bitnami its all easy, the program automatically configure the application and all the dependencies so you don't have to worry about it. they also automatically keep your application up to date. the pricing is also affordable to most of the users, there is also an option to create a small free server and test your application on it. I found the development container particularly helpful when I'm trying to compile and test new programs. the support is also great that they reply to your questions in minutes and help you relsve any issues.

What do you dislike?

the interface can be a little complex for some users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

try to set up an application on the cloud by yourself and then try it with bitnami, you'll see the difference.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Running applications in the cloud.

One click installation and quick setup. Say goodbye to the hassle

What do you like best?

Bitnami product containers are hassle free. I remember when I hadn't knew about these products, I had to spend several hours to setup a LAMP stack. Now with Bitnami's XAMP, it is just a matter of one click installation. Furthermore, some applications are also available as VM, hence easy to migrate.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing in this product that I don't like. It is perfect for local development as well as Cloud based deployment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy and perfect for one-click installation of the applications you need; both on the cloud and local.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

These packaged applications of Bitnami makes the setup very easy. They contains almost all popular applications like "Wordpress", "Drupal". So it is just a matter of few clicks and you will have your installation running in no time.

The best end-to-end automation platform for web applications autoinstaled in servers

What do you like best?

Its easy and intuitive use, The possibility of auto install in a simple way in both my local server and in cloud, any application, To test an application for 1 hour without having to install permanently.

What do you dislike?

Every time you download wordpress with bitnami for example, install a bitnami module with apache and mysql for each installation, Instead of doing it in a single module for example with xampp

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to easily install a service or platform to integrate a robust cloud service that manages and allows easy administration through a single system, allowing you to test a demo for the client in real time, then the recommendation is certainly bitnami

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it daily for both my developments in wordpress, for clients, classes and consultancies, I give you the possibility to test the platform and the installation to my clients from bitnami in the cloud
