Bitnami

I haven't come across any situation where I thought Bitnami would be less appropriate. I know what they offer and I have an idea of when to use them and when not to use them. They do excel at what they do.

IBM WebSphere Application Server on Cloud

For heavy enterprise workloads requiring high availability, reliability and working predominantly with a Java stack. The IBM WebSphere Application Server on Cloud brings about unmatched performance and reliability, especially where applications are complex and require lots of middleware integration and support. The integrated message broker functionality greatly reduces the work required for external integration and configuration; however some logging and monitoring could be improved
