AURO Cloud Announces Partnership With Bitnami to Bring Easy, Open-Source One-Click Applications to Canadian Cloud Computing Customers

Vancouver, BC (PRNewswire) March 2, 2015

AURO, the first Canadian enterprise public cloud, announced an expansion of their cloud computing application marketplace with their partnership with Bitnami, giving customers access to open-source applications and stacks with the ease of one-click installs. Customers can now test new apps, complete software development products, develop, deploy and launch apps in the cloud without extensive expertise.

Bitnami is the leading provider of open source images and provides a library of the most popular applications and development stacks, with images optimized for AURO's cloud computing environment. These apps and their dependencies are compiled and configured so that a consistent, secure and optimized end-user experience comes with deployment of any app or platform.

AURO's availability of Bitnami combines the ease of application and image launch with the power of enterprise-grade cloud infrastructure. Users can save time configuring and deploying applications but still achieve a large scale compute level with massive scalability and enterprise reliability. AURO's application marketplace is the most comprehensive in Canada and provides access to OS distributions like Windows, Ubuntu and CoreOS.

"We are excited to partner with Bitnami and bring their services into Canada," said Matt McKinney, Chief Strategy Officer of AURO."They've worked with leading cloud computing providers like AWS and Google Cloud, and allow us to bring their open source images to our customers. Clients get greater flexibility and ability to focus on their businesses or development projects without having to worry about complicated configurations."
