SugarCRM and BitNami Have Partnered to Make It Easy to Run SugarCRM Professional, Enterprise and Community Editions on Amazon Web Services Using BitNami Cloud Hosting, a Platform That Helps Businesses Deploy and Manage Servers in the Cloud

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/04/11 -- SugarCRM, a leading provider of customer relationship management (CRM) software, and BitNami announced today that they have partnered to provide SugarCRM as part of BitNami Cloud Hosting. BitNami Cloud Hosting provides businesses and consultants with one-click application deployment, automated backups, server scheduling, one-click server restores, monitoring and other features for applications running on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

With the BitNami and SugarCRM partnership, BitNami becomes SugarCRM's preferred method to deploy its software on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). BitNami will showcase its solution at the AWSbooth (#301) at the SugarCon conference in San Francisco, taking place April 4-6th at The Palace Hotel.

BitNami Cloud Hosting enables consultants and solutions providers to have a completely configured SugarCRM environment up and running in the cloud in just minutes, making it easy for users of all technical skill levels to confidently run SugarCRM on the AWS cloud.

"I chose BitNami Cloud Hosting because of its simplicity," said Josh Ovett, a Managing Partner at Plus Consulting, a SugarCRM Gold Partner and reseller. "I was able to get my developers up and running in minutes with minimal knowledge of Linux or how to run on Amazon Web Services. I receive all of the basics -- backups, monitoring, restores and re-sizing -- with just a few mouse clicks."

"Amazon Web Services enables developers and businesses to quickly deploy applications of all types including business applications like SugarCRM, in a highly secure, reliable, scalable and cost effective environment," said Terry Wise, Director of Business Development at Amazon Web Services LLC. "We are pleased to work with BitNami and SugarCRM to help businesses move their mission-critical applications to the AWS cloud."

Both the Professional and Enterprise versions of SugarCRM are now available for one-click deployment in BitNami Cloud Hosting, as is the open source Community Edition. This enables users to choose the edition of SugarCRM that best meets their needs.

"BitNami makes it easy for users to leverage an open, flexible cloud solution for their SugarCRM needs on Amazon Web Services."
