Bitnami Launches a Pre-Configured Image for Open edX on Amazon EC2

bit, a well-known cloud hosting company, has created a pre-configured image to run Open edX on Amazon EC2, based on the Birch release and Ubuntu 14.04.1.

Details are here. And docs, here.

The fact that Open edX is available in the AWS Marketplace has been highlighted by edX in a recent press release.

However, it is worth remembering that pre-installed images have been provided by edX on Amazon.

Some users in the developer community have noted that Bitnami’s solution is “disappointing, not responsive and no-go for clients”. Ubuntu 14.04.01 on Open edX is truly experimental. “Regular installations are full of problems, so who needs to experiment with a new Ubuntu”, said David C.
