Although companies could previously use npm On-Site in the AWS cloud to run private npm registries and Web sites behind firewalls, the technology has been simplified and packaged in an AMI.
"In a previous blog post we showed you how easy it is to run npm Enterprise on Amazon Web Services," npm said in a blog post last Thursday. "Today, we're happy to announce the public availability of the npm Enterprise Amazon Machine Image (AMI). Now, it's even easier to run your own private npm registry and Web site on AWS.
The npm Enterprise AMI -- a template containing software configuration for an OS, application server and applications -- is available in several AWS regions. The AMI runs on various flavors of Linux, including Ubuntu, CentOS and Red Hat. Complete documentation for running npm Enterprise in AWS is available here.
