Posted on 2006-08-04

San Francisco, CA. August 1, 2006. BitRock Incorporated announced today the release of LAPPStack, an easy to install distribution of Apache, PostgreSQL, PHP, Python, and supporting libraries. Its user-friendly installer, developed with BitRock’s InstallBuilder tool, allows users to quickly install and configure LAPPStack across a wide range of Linux platforms.

LAPPStack 1.0 is licensed under the terms of the Apache License 2.0, and is free for download and use from www.bitrock.com. It allows users to take advantage of the stability, low cost and high performance of the LAPP web development platform (Linux, Apache, PostgreSQL, and PHP/Python) without the hassle of integrating, configuring, and supporting their own build. LAPPStack provides an integrated package that can be used by both commercial and open source projects for rapid, consistent deployments in both development and production environments.

BitRock LAPPStack is one of several packaged distributions of open source applications offered by BitRock. Also available are 2 versions of the LAMP stack and BitRock MonoStack, an easy to install distribution that integrates with the Mono Runtime to create a complete Mono development environment. In the coming weeks, BitRock also will be releasing LAMPStack for Windows and LAMPStack for Linux 64-bit. Fully-integrated and packaged with BitRock InstallBuilder, BitRock Stacks ensure ease of download and installation for the end-user. The Stacks help to encourage adoption of open source software by making it easier to use and deploy across a range of environments.

BitRock Stacks highlight the company’s expertise in integrating and packaging software for easy installation and configuration. In addition to its standard Stacks, BitRock specializes in building and packaging customized distributions of open source tools and libraries. Its Custom Stacks provide a cost-effective way for ISVs and internal IT departments to ship a complete, integrated package that includes their software and the third party components that it depends on in an easy to install package. The resulting installers present a streamlined installation process that reduces both support calls and end-user frustration, helping companies to speed product adoption.
