Open source ERP on Amazon EC2

Compiere's Amazon-hosted virtual computing environment helps customers reap cloud benefits for ERP tasks.

Compiere stepped into the cloud by making its open source ERP wares available on Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).

Customers can now tap into the Amazon-hosted virtual computing environment, dubbed Compeire Cloud Edition, for ERP tasks including accounting, purchasing, order fulfillment, manufacturing, warehousing, and CRM, the open source ERP vendor said on Wednesday.

A subscription to Compeire Cloud Edition includes application support, service packs, and access to upgrade tools, the company said in a statement. Customers can also opt for implementation, integration, and customer-specific cloud images.

Compiere Cloud Edition running on Amazon's EC2 enables customers to take advantage of cloud computing's benefits, including lower up-front costs, faster time to deployment, the ability to add capacity on the fly, and reduced on-going hardware and infrastructure expenditures, according to the companies.

"The majority of enterprises are thus far using Amazon as a playpen," said Gary Barnett, an analyst with consultancy The Bathwick Group.

Compiere Cloud Edition likely will appeal most to smaller companies that do not already have mountains of back-end ERP data residing in SAP or Oracle to migrate over to Amazon's EC2.
