As someone who has used OpenNMS for, well, many years, I think it is a breeze to get installed. Simply add the repository to your server, install the package(s), run the installer and start it.
However, there are a number of new users who still have issues getting it installed. This is not a problem limited just to OpenNMS but can be a problem across a number of open source projects.
Enter Bitnami. Bitnami is a project to package applications to make them easier to install: natively, in the cloud, in a container or as a virtual machine. Ronny pointed out that OpenNMS is listed in their “wishlist” section, and if we can get enough votes, perhaps they will add it to their stack.
Bitnami also happens to have a great team, lead in part by the ever amazing Erica Brescia. As I write this we have less that 50 votes, with the current leaders being over 1200, so there is a long way to go. I’d appreciate your support, and once you vote you get a second chance to vote again via the socials.
Thanks, and thanks to Bitnami for the opportunity.
