Bitnami Stacksmith 5-Day Proof-of-Concept


In five days, Bitnami will package and deploy your application to Azure, while teaching you how to maintain your app to keep it up-to-date and secure over time.

Bitnami, a Gold Competency ISV Microsoft partner, has productization its packaging and maintenance technology as Stacksmith. Designed for enterprise companies, Stacksmith takes applications and scripts, repackages and optimizes them for Azure or AKS, and delivers everything that is needed to deploy them.

Whether all of your apps on Azure or you’re just starting to migrate to the cloud, the Bitnami team will work with you to evaluate your current approach and teach you the best practices. Using Bitnami Stacksmith, your first app will be set up and replatformed for Azure and/or AKS. In addition, this engagement includes a 30-day trial of the Bitnami Stacksmith subscription.

Bitnami Application Onboarding provides all the support to ensure that you get up and running with Stacksmith quickly and efficiently.

  • Set up your Stacksmith evaluation account
