SugarCRM stack available on Bitnami.org

The intrepid BitRock team has outdone themselves again and released SugarCRM on their Bitnami Stack.  The Bitnami Stack installers allow you to install Apache and various different run-time languages (PHP, Ruby, etc) along with various databases (MySQL, PostGres, etc).  Then you can plug in different applications like SugarCRM or Drupal on top of those stacks.

The BitNami-packaged SugarCRM stack is available as both a complete, self-contained Stack, and as a BitNami Modules. BitNami Modules enable users to run several applications on top of one AMPStack (Apache/MySQL/PHP) that runs on Windows, Linus or Mac. Here’s an article on how the Modules system works.  It’s very quick and easy to download and install the BitNami SugarCRM package on your local machine.

What I found even cooler was that you can sign up on RightScale for 10 free hours of time on the Amazon EC2 cloud computing platform and deploy your Bitnami for SugarCRM stack there.  Unfortunately I haven’t been able to actually get the SugarCRM application to correctly deploy on my RightScale test account yet, but I’m sure I’ll get it figured out here shortly.

Very cool all around!
