Bitnami

The aim of BitNami is to simplify the deployment of web applications, such as wikis or blogs, in order to make them more accessible. There are a lot of high quality open source software packages that aren’t used as much as they could be because getting them up and running can be a complex process.

Scalr

With Scalr, your website and web application can grow to millions of users with little work.

It will scale your database, application servers, and load balancers so you never have to. The end result? With Scalr, you’ll never need an $8000/month IT person – just a $99/month subscription to scalr.net
