    Hi Krishnan, thanks a lot for the wonderful article. We put a lot of work in BitNami and it makes us happy/proud when people find it useful 🙂

    I wanted to mention we are working on some of the items mentioned in the post, in particular adding new supported platforms for the cloud images (including Amazon’s flavor of Linux) and the ability to support customized EBS sizes.

    Which application stacks do you feel are missing from our lineup?

    EBS backed AMI’s are often my first choice because I like to take snapshots from outside the instance (rather than run scripts to bundle things into S3 via FUSE to S3 from within the instance.)

    I also like AMI’s that can optionally fit into a t1.micro instance and currently, Amazon has their t1.micros set up to only look at EBS based images. t1.micro may not always be the best fit, but it’s often a good start.
