Bitnami SugarCRM Module
Bitnami SugarCRM Module is an easy-to-install and free distribution of SugarCRM, which can be deployed on top of an existing Bitnami LAMP installation. With it, users can get a SugarCRM installation up and running in minutes after answering a few questions. GNU/Linux, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows operating systems are supported.
What is SugarCRM?
SugarCRM is a free, platform-independent, flexible and open source customer relationship management (CRM) solution for small and medium-sized businesses. It has been designed from the ground up to allow users to connect with people across their company, manage all their customers and accounts with ease, as well as to start selling to their customer base.
Installing Bitnami SugarCRM Module
As usual, Bitnami provides users with native graphical installers for its products. To install the SugarCRM app on a Bitnami LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) server, download the file that corresponds to your computer’s hardware architecture, make it executable, run it and follow the instructions displayed on the screen. The Bitnami SugarCRM Module is smaller in size as it does not include the SugarCRM dependencies.
Run SugarCRM on the cloud
Thanks to Bitnami, it is also possible to deploy SugarCRM on the cloud by using the pre-built cloud images for the Windows Azure and Amazon EC2 cloud hosting providers. Additionally, you can virtualize SugarCRM by downloading the virtual machine image based on the latest LTS release of Ubuntu Linux and designed for Oracle VirtualBox and VMware ESX/ESXi virtualization software.
The Bitnami SugarCRM Stack
Besides the Bitnami SugarCRM Module product reviewed here, Bitnami also offers an all-in-one solution for installing the SugarCRM application and all of its runtime dependencies on your personal computer, without having to know anything about databases, web servers and other web technologies. The Bitnami SugarCRM Stack is available for download for free on Softpedia.
