Bitnami SugarCRM Stack
Bitnami SugarCRM Stack is an easy-to-install distribution of SugarCRM, PHP, MySQL and Apache. It includes pre-configured, ready-to-run versions of these web technologies and allows you to have a working SugarCRM website in minutes, without having to know anything about installing a web server or a database.
What is SugarCRM?
SugarCRM is an open source and flexible CRM (Customer Relationship Management) solution for companies of all sizes. Key features include the ability to manage all your customers and accounts from a single place, start selling to your customer base, as well as to connect with people across your company.
Installing Bitnami SugarCRM Stack
Users can get a SugarCRM installation up and running in minutes after answering a few questions asked by the native installers for the GNU/Linux, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows operating systems. A successful installation comprises of downloading the file that corresponds to your computer’s hardware architecture, run it and follow the on-screen instructions.
Run SugarCRM on the cloud
Thanks to Bitnami, you can also deploy the SugarCRM application on the cloud, thanks to Bitnami pre-built and ready-to-use cloud images for the Windows Azure and Amazon EC2 cloud hosting services. In addition, it is also possible to use SugarCRM virtualized on top of VMware or VirtualBox virtualization software, simply by using Bitnami’s virtual machine images based on the latest stable (LTS) release of the world’s most popular free operating system, Ubuntu.
The Bitnami SugarCRM Module
Besides the Bitnami SugarCRM Stack product reviewed here, Bitnami also offers a companion for the Bitnami LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) product, which is also distributed as a native installer for all mainstream operating systems. The Bitnami SugarCRM Module is smaller than Bitnami SugarCRM Stack, as it only includes the SugarCRM application. It is available for download for free from Softpedia!
