This is very nice. "Bitnami is an app store for server software. Install your favorite applications in your own servers or run them in the cloud. Select one app to get started or learn more about what makes Bitnami special." No, it's not free (of course). There are demo modes, but they're short-lived. For your own cloud server you'll need to enter your Amazon Web Service credentials.

For more on this, see this great post from Jim Groom outlining how he created a Ghost service. He describes how it works: "AWS provides a relatively easy way to install an application like Ghost, which has unique server dependencies, by tapping into Amazon’s marketplace of Community Images. These are searchable, virtualized packages that take care of all the server settings for a given application, enabling you to get up and running quickly and easily."
