Compiere Leverages EC2

Open source ERP house releases its ERP solution on Amazon’s EC2 cloud

Compiere, the open source ERP house that sounds like it should be in Rome but is actually in Redwood Shores, California, has released its ERP solution on Amazon’s EC2 cloud.

It calls the stuff its Cloud Edition and says it’s based on its Professional Edition. Besides an Amazon Machine Image, it comes with a complete certified technology stack consisting of an operating system, application server and database that can reportedly be deployed on EC2 in minutes.

It should appeal to SMEs.

It’s supposed to automate processes from accounting, to purchasing, order fulfillment, manufacturing, warehousing and CRM.

EC2 is supposed to reduce the cost of ERP deployment by eliminating upfront capital costs for hardware, software and infrastructure support costs. And the company says that based on its internal estimates, its Cloud Edition can save companies up to 80% in ERP software TCO.

Compiere Cloud Edition subscriptions include application support, service packs and access to Compiere’s automated upgrade tools. The company or its partners can provide additional services such as implementation, customization, integration and customer-specific cloud images.

Compiere claims 1.6 million downloads.
