Great product, just don't need it at the moment.
Love SCRM it's a great product. I know it's quite capable and robust, but just does not involve the functionality we need today.
Simple and fast to get setup
As always a Bitnami stack is quick and easy to get a system up in next to no time.
Note the password to the SugarCRM login 'user' account is not bitnami
The Bitnami powered SugarCRM came right up and exceeded my expectations for performance and it is easy to manage. Thanks Amazon and Bitnami!
Easy to launch. Easy to use
This is my first time launching AWS EC2 and SugarCRM and I found everything very easy. I was like "That's it? There must be something that I didn't do yet". But no! it is there up and running. I was really surprised that in about 10 minutes I have my CRM system running and be accessible in anyplace. Great!
Couldn't get it to spin up
The EC2 instance fired up, but could never get it to respond via HTTP. I am sure if I spent more time fiddling with it I could have gotten it to work...but isn't the point of a pre-built system to not have to do that?
I ended up doing my own install of SugarCRM from scratch. Took me 4 hours and now I know where everything is.
I really like the idea/intent of BitNami and am rooting for them, but in this case it didn't work for me.
This BitNami stack made it very easy for me to get SugarCRM up and running on AWS. I can only imagine the hours I would have needed to spend installing and configuring Apache, MySQL, PHP, PhpMyAdmin, and Sugar itself. BitNami did all the heavy lifting.
